Byron's lawsuit says a deputy shot her with a stun gun, then apologized with a cake that said, "Sorry I Tased You" in blue frosting. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Pensacola, Fla., alleges former Escambia County sheriff's deputy Michael Wohlers violated Byron's civil rights, committed battery against her and caused her hardships, including physical injuries, monetary loss, medical expenses, humiliation and mental anguish.
