Officer Kerrick has been placed in jail on a $50,000 bond

Police arrived and when Ferrell began limping in their direction they predictably began to deploy their tasers, which malfunctioned. Another officer then reacted by pulling out his weapon and killing him. All three police involved have been put on paid leave including Randall Kerrick who has been charged with a felony, voluntary manslaughter.
