A Tucumcari girl is recovering in an Albuquerque after being shot in the head with a taser by the police chief.
Stacy Akin says she and her 14-year-old daughter were arguing so she drove to the police department for help.
Police Chief Roger Hatcher says the girl ran off, but he then found her in a park.
When he got out of his car to call her, he says she ran in front of it across a street without looking.
He says he had no choice but to fire his taser to stop her.
