Shocking moment police Taser 'drink' driver in 'unnecessary force' in front of his screaming child at petrol station as Labour's Andy Burnham calls for urgent probe and police refer incident to IOPC

This is the shocking moment police Taser a father at a petrol station in front of his screaming child.
Disturbing footage shows two officers bringing Desmond Ziggy Mombeyarara, 34, to the ground as his son watches in Stretford, Greater Manchester.
The young boy is dragged away by one of the policemen towards the end of the clash at 11pm on Wednesday.
A witness, who recorded the incident on her phone, blasted what she called 'unnecessary force' against the father.
Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said he was 'concerned' by the video and police have referred themselves to the Independent Office For Police Conduct.

The woman filming says 'oh my god he's got a child' as the camera zooms in to reveal the youngster in his arms.
The policemen continue to clash with Mombeyarara, who swings his arms up out of their grasp.

One of the officers tells him: 'You're the one that's causing the problem.' They continue to argue until one officer tells the other to 'Taser him'.
There is a bang as the Taser is released and the man falls to the ground.
His son lets out a loud scream, shouting 'Daddy' as his father smashes face first into the ground.
The child becomes even more distressed and the woman filming can be heard saying 'oh my god'.
The man lies on the floor as one of the officers says 'put your hands behind your back, get your hands behind your back'.

As the clip ends, the youngster is carried off by one of the officers as he continues shouting at Mombeyarara.
Witness Dionne Allman, 19, shared the footage she captured on Facebook, branding the police's actions 'disgusting and appalling'.
She claimed: 'After this video was taken I continued to film and the police officer continued to Taser the man several consecutive times whilst his son was still witnessing this all happen.
'I don't know what the man did or was accused of, but the level of force used on him with the inappropriate procedures was incredibly difficult to watch.
'At times like this, institutes like the police need to be people that we can rely on for protection in every sense of the word and I personally think that the last thing they did was protect this child's mental well being.'

A GMP spokesman said: 'A man has been charged following an incident which saw a taser being deployed by a GMP officer.
'Shortly before 11pm on Wednesday, May 6, police officers observed a vehicle being driven unsafely at high speed on Chester Road, in Stretford.'
They said the car was stopped and Mombeyarara, from Old Trafford, was arrested and charged with two counts of resisting a constable in the execution of their duty.
He was also charged with one count of driving at excess speed, one count of not having vehicle insurance, one count of being unfit to drive through drink, one count of failing without reasonable excuse to co-operate with a preliminary test, one count of failing to stop when required to do so and one count of unnecessary travel.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear before Manchester Magistrates' Court today.

The spokesman added: 'During the arrest a taser was deployed by a Greater Manchester Police Officer.
'The matter has been reviewed by the GMP Professional Standards Branch and we have voluntarily referred this matter to the Independent Office for Police Conduct, to ensure transparency and independence in terms of reviewing the circumstances of the arrest.'
Superintendent Mark Kenny said: 'We are aware of public concern regarding this arrest and I want to reassure the public that this matter is being reviewed and treated seriously. In addition we have voluntarily referred this matter to the IOPC.'
Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham posted a statement after the incident on his Twitter page, saying he was 'concerned'.
He wrote: 'On Friday morning a video was brought to my attention of a police incident at a petrol station in Greater Manchester involving two police officers, a man, a child and the use of a taser.
'From what I have been told, it would appear that the officers were right to apprehend the individual who was putting his child and others at risk by his actions.
'He has subsequently been charged. But it is not at all clear that the level of force used in this instance, particularly in front of a child, was proportionate or justified and that is why I have asked for an urgent independent review to be carried out.'
Manchester Gorton MP Afzal Khan posted: @Very alarming to see @gmpolice using such undue force and in front of a small child. I hope this will be looked into as a matter of urgency.'
