Police Taser belligerent man

The Kelowna RCMP used a Taser to arrest a belligerent man Thursday near Leon Avenue and Water Street.

Police were called to the area around 3 p.m. for a report of a male acting erratic and aggressive towards the public. Officers arrived to find the man highly agitated and intoxicated.

“The subject of complaint resisted lawful arrest, allegedly turned combative towards police and ran into the rush hour traffic of Highway 97, placing both himself and others at great risk,” Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey said.

Concerned for public and police safety, and the well-being of the man, officers used a conducted energy weapon to subdue him.

The 36-year-old Kelowna man was assessed medically and remains in custody. He faces possible charges.
