Rioter Wants Conviction Tossed Over His Stun Gun

Law & Crime reports:

The Jan. 6th rioter photographed kicking his foot up on a desk in then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office wants to overturn his convictions on charges that could put him away for 46 years.

Richard “Bigo” Barnett claims that the 950,000-volt stun gun seen at his hip was “non-dangerous.” The packaging for that weapon, a Zap Hike N’ Strike, was found inside Barnett’s home in Gravette, Arkansas, authorities said.

Prosecutors performed a demonstration of the weapon for the jury at his recent trial. The defense motion claims that prosecutors “deliberately demonstrated a Zap Hike ‘N Strike for five seconds to misrepresent the non-dangerous item and to unfairly scare the jury with the sound.”
