This is how YouTube heroes are born! Andrew Meyer, a student at the University of Florida, seemed to be looking for trouble when he asked a friend to video him at a Sen. John Kerry campus forum. After being granted approval to ask a question, but refused to give up the microphone when his questions grew more provocative. A campus officer stepped in who then tasered Meyer. The camera rolled throughout, and the next YouTube star was born. The U of F president called the incident "regretful" and placed the two officers on paid leave. As a University of Florida alum, all I can say is, go Gators!
