Blotter: Police: Officer uses stun gun on suspect

Comments () A Text Size

Denton police used a stun gun to subdue one of four suspects Tuesday evening after one resisted an officer in jail, police said.

The four, according to reports, were brought to jail on various charges after officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Sam Bass Boulevard in response to a fight in the pool area of an apartment complex. Officials said no one required medical attention and no weapons were used during the altercation.

Two men and two women were then taken to the city jail.

Denton Police Department spokesman Officer Ryan Grelle said officers used the stun gun on a 26-year-old man after he became resistant at the jail.

“Once on the ground, he reached for another officer’s Taser and was charged for trying to take the weapon,” Grelle said.
