23-year-old Clayton Montoya was charged with false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery.

The affidavit states that the 17-year-old girl’s mother contacted the New Mexico State Police in Las Vegas, New Mexico, to report the alleged incident.

According to the document, the girl said that she was temporarily left alone with officer Montoya, while working in her family cafe when the incident occurred.

The victim knew the officer since he was the cousin of her best friend.

After taking his order, Montoya started talking to the girl.

During the conversation, Montoya allegedly pulled his stun gun, activated it and pointed the laser light at the midsection of the girl’s body.

She told police that Montoya laughed, and then turned the Taser away from her and pulled the trigger. Montoya then allegedly grabbed her hips and forced her to sit on his lap.

When the mother of the girl came back into the cafe, she saw her daughter sitting on Montoya’s lap. She said that the girl immediately stood up and looked like she was waiting for the opportunity to get away from the officer.

The mother ordered the officer to leave, and he did.
