(Watertown Daily) An Ogdensburg woman, just days from earning a degree in law enforcement leadership from SUNY Canton, said she found herself pushed to the ground and shocked with a stun gun by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents on Thursday after refusing to comply with their orders.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection acknowledged the incident and said it is investigating.
The altercation unfolded when agents stopped 21-year-old Jessica A. Cooke at about 3:30 p.m. on Route 37, just north of The Kitchen at Iroquois Farm restaurant, during a routine checkpoint, she said.
