A 26-year-old man was arrested after he attempted to flee police who deployed a taser to subdue him following a traffic stop in the 2100 block of 50th Street on Tuesday.
The Kenosha man was a passenger in the vehicle that officers had stopped at 4:44 pm for an equipment violation, according to Lt. Josh Hecker of the Kenosha Police Department.
“Essentially officers conducted a traffic stop and the passenger fled on foot. They took chase and they were able to take the guy into custody. But in the meantime, the guy fleeing resisted arrest,” said Hecker. “We had to use force against the passenger.”
Police used the electronic control device as the man resisted. An officer suffered minor injuries in the incident but he was able to return to duty, Hecker said.
Drone footage from the Wisconsin State Patrol shows a suspect from a vehicle crash that was reported at 9:39 am at Interstate 94 and Highway C on Monday, Jan. 30, 2023.
