LEE COUNTY, FL- Lee County fires a corrections officer after he admits to using his taser on his family, while he was off the clock.
39 Year old Gene Ulbrich has been working in corrections with the Lee County sheriff's office since 2007.
In October a woman complained that Ulbrich had tased her 18 year old son, Deven, causing him to fall to the ground.
Deven was dating Ulbrich's daughter at the time.
It wasn't the first time Ulbrich had tased someone off duty.
Colonel Thomas Ellegood says,
"Ulbrich had picked up his taser from our training department, and while in the vehicle with his wife, Ulbrich was driving, his wife was the passenger reached over, without probes, not shooting anything, but what we call a contact stun, placed the device directly against the flesh of an individual, stunned his wife on the leg, on off duty time."
Through the investigation, it was revealed that Ulbrich had also admitted using the taser on his daughter and son.
The Cape mother says initially, her son did not want to come forward with the information because he was still dating Ulbrich's daughter.
