Officers responded to reports of a disturbance at about 8.15pm on Wednesday in Gorton, east Manchester, and used the Taser while detaining the man. The police force referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Begley was described by his boss as “a very good lad” who had been saving up to move out of his mother’s house. Paul Sivori, of Sivori’s ice cream factory, said Begley had been working full-time at the plant for at least three years, both in the depot, which supplies a fleet of ice cream vans, and in the factory shop.
