A commuter has been repeatedly tasered and wrestled by police officers while on a crowded bus, despite not appearing to behave in a threatening manner.
The man was sitting about half way down a bus near Moore Park, south east of Sydney, Thursday afternoon when officers boarded the vehicle.
Footage showed the 37-year-old extended an arm towards one of the officers before being thrown back against the glass window from the force of the taser.

Police from a stationary Random Breath Testing station on Anzac Parade approached the man after being waved over by the bus driver, according to a police spokesman.
‘At 2.30pm officers from Surry Hills Command were conducting a stationary RBT on Anzac Parade at Moore Park,’ the spokesman said.
‘A bus stopped nearby and the driver signalled for assistance. Police were told a man had allegedly assaulted two other bus passengers.’
During the heated confrontation, one officer leans over the chair in front in attempt to restrain the man, who had just been stunned.

The other approached from the side and discharged another bolt, before the man scrabbled along the floor and out the bus’s middle set of doors.
He appeared to have been zapped again once outside, as he fell to the ground face-first.
Officers then conducted an arrest, with one kneeling on his back and the other at the side of his body.
The alleged offender reportedly refused to co-operate with police and resisted arrest, eventually being taken to Surry Hills police station.
No one was injured in the arrest.
