Sick paraplegic arrested for tying-up exotic dancer and tazing her in the chest after she refused to have sex
31-year-old Johnnie Thompson, who is paralyzed from the waist down, held the woman at gunpoint before shooting her twice with a taser when she refused to have sex with him
A paraplegic man in the US hired an exotic dancer to go to his home in Georgia. He then proceeded to hold her at gunpoint and asked her to have sex with him before shooting her twice with a taser when she refused. 31-year-old Johnnie Thompson is paralyzed from the waist down. He hired the woman to go to his home in Decatur where he lives in with his parents.
After the woman got into the home, the paraplegic pulled out a gun and forced her to go with him to a room in the back of the house where he had already set up cameras. He forced her to take her clothes off and proceeded to tie up her ankles using zip-ties.
Chris Tappan, a DeKalb County Police Detective, told WSB-TV2: "I'm trying to get and keep a dangerous individual off the streets. He's challenging their lives. He pulled out a handgun and a Tazer and coerced her to his back bedroom, where he had video cameras set up, and computers," Tappan said. "He then forced her to take her clothes off."
According to the officer, the woman started to fight back and that was why he fired a Tazer at her. He said: "He fired at her, not once, but twice, in her chest." The woman was able to somehow cut the zip-ties off her ankles and hand. She then fled through a window and immediately called 911.
The authorities reached the scene and found the hired exotic dancer to be partially naked because she had run away the moment she got a chance. The prongs from the taser firings she had received were still reported to have been on her chest. She was so terrified that she did not notice.
The police subsequently arrested Thompson for false imprisonment and aggravated assault. He maintained that he was not the one to blame in this situation and kept saying that the exotic dancer, whom he had hired and tied up a while back, was the one who had attacked him. The result of that incident was apparently him tasing her twice in the chest.
"He said she went crazy, attacked him and that he defended himself." According to the detective, there could be many more women who had been attacked by Thompson in a similar fashion. Another exotic dancer came forward and said that, about three months ago, she had also been attacked in the same home by the paraplegic man. "We believe there could be other victims out there," the detective concluded.
