Some believe police used excessive force after a man was tased while being arrested in front of a large crowd at a local Dunkin'.
A Village of Wappinger Falls Police Department spokesperson tells Hudson Valley Post police investigated after they received three noise complaints coming from the Dunkin' on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls Sunday night.
