A Wisconsin man who posted a video online showing him and his father shocking each other with a stolen stun gun has been sent to prison. Paul Crowell pleaded guilty to possession of an electric weapon and was sentenced June 20 to two years.

Documents say he stole a Taser from an East Troy police officer. He got it while sitting in a patrol car after his vehicle was found in a ditch.

The 22-year-old allegedly showed the online video to a girl, and she reported it to police.

Crowell's father, Paul Dupey, also pleaded guilty to possession of an electric weapon. He is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
