FOOTBALLER Dalian Atkinson hit the ground “like a ton of bricks” when cops tasered him, a court heard yesterday.
Witness Julia Shilton told Birmingham crown court the ex Aston Villa star appeared agitated.
Mrs Shilton, who witnessed the alleged killing from the window of her home, told Birmingham Crown Court she heard what sounded like an argument and then a police officer shouting to a man to get on the ground.
Ella dijo: “The officer drew a Taser and I heard a crackling sound but Mr Atkinson was still stood.
“Then the officer had fired the Taser again. At that point Mr Atkinson fell down to the ground. Like a ton of bricks.
