Officer in Huge Trouble Over His Taser Use

State police have arrested a Naugatuck police officer who was under criminal investigation for his use of a taser during an arrest earlier this month. Thirty-six-year-old Nicholas Kehoss, a 13-year veteran of the police force, has been charged with intentional cruelty to persons and assault in the third degree. The incident happened on Oct. 14 during the arrest of 33-year-old Jarrell Day, of Waterbury. The arrest followed a brief pursuit and foot chase after an attempted robbery at Stop & Shop in Naugatuck, according to police.
