MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -

Police in Muskogee say the FBI is investigating the use of a stun gun and pepper spray by two police officers on a woman who was handcuffed to a gurney at Muskogee Regional Medical Center.

Police Cpl. Pedro Zardeneta told the Muskogee Phoenix that a report on the Nov. 6 incident has been sent to investigators.

The names of the officers have not been released. Zardeneta said neither officer was placed on leave.
