A Putnam County Sheriff's deputy resigned after, according to officials, the deputy tased teenagers at a church camp in July.

The Cpl. Dave Bailey was not on duty, according to Putnam County Sheriff Steve Deweese, but he was a camp counselor and pastor at the camp.  The Bailey was monitoring about 10 campers at facility in Red House.

The Bailey was using a personal Taser, according to the sheriff.  The Taser was not issued by the Putnam County Sheriff's Department.

None of the teenagers were seriously injured, according to Sheriff Deweese.

Bailey had been with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office for 11 years.
