(Newser) – Most people can accept being the victim of an office prank—but Tasing seems a little much. In that spirit, a Texas man has filed suit against a GOP state lawmaker and her husband over months of alleged Taser attacks while working at their Houston car dealership, reports. "I was constantly looking behind my shoulder, distracted, couldn’t sleep," says Bradley Jones. "I would even look behind my shower curtain at home."

State Rep. Patricia Harless' husband, Sam Harless, allegedly made a Taser available to employees at the Houston office and filmed them sneaking up on Jones and shocking him. According to the suit, the pranks went on for months and even got posted on YouTube—but have since been removed (see one at the KHOU link). But Sam Harless denies the whole thing: "This is a frivolous lawsuit," he says. "Once the facts come out, it will be thrown out." (Hat tip, Raw Story.)
