According to Arizona DPS records, the officers suspension was connected to evidence that Cervantes tased his family dog "at least three times as a form of discipline for the dog digging holes in the backyard."
DPS paperwork indicates Cervantes admitted to using the state-issued TASER on the dog during two separate occasions. He received a letter of reprimand for this.
