Kyle McArdle was tasered multiple times by officers before passing out.

Two police officers have been fired after tasering an innocent man five times for no reason, it has been reported.

Kyle McArdle, 26, was dragged from the streets and said he passed out from the excruciating pain inflicted by the 50,000-volt weapons after officer’s repeatedly tasered him.

He was shot in the chest, stomach and leg at point-blank range as up to three officers assaulted him.

It took four years before PC Simon Jones and PC Joanne Kelly were finally fired for gross misconduct during which Merseyside Police insisted they did nothing wrong.

The third officer, Charlie Tennant was sacked over a separate offence in 2011. The offence in question? He was pictured stealing goods from a suspect’s home during a raid.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission had ruled that the officers ignored national guidelines and used excessive force

Last night, Mr McArdle said: “I have never come across such brutality, and for that to be at the hands of the police – people I would have expected to trust – has been really disturbing.
I wasn’t offering any resistance when they launched an unprovoked attack, hitting me on the head and choking me. When I raised my hands in self-defence I was tasered five times and dragged to a police station like a criminal.”

Mr McArdle was arrested for relieving himself in an alley during a night out at his brother-in-laws party in 2009.

He also had the tasers themselves pushed directly into his body three times and discharged, an agonising technique known as a ‘drive stun’.

One officer ripped the metal barbs that had been fired from the taser from his body, despite rules that this must be done by a doctor.

Mr McArdle was charged with assault but was acquitted in September 2010 by a magistrate who questioned the officers account.

CCTV evidence of the event later demonstrated that the victim was not resisting during the ordeal.

Mr McArdle added: “I couldn’t believe it – it felt like I had been kidnapped for having a wee in an alley and now I was being tortured in the back of the van. I was in agony and in shock.
I tried to grab the Taser to stop it happening again and he Tasered me in the hand and then I was Tasered yet again. I must have passed out because when I came round I was in handcuffs.”
