Shadow boxing is all fun and games, until you start threatening passers-by. Then, you could end up with a jolt from a Taser — and in handcuffs.
Salt Lake City police say that’s what happened about noon Monday after they responded to two 911 calls about a 39-year-old man engaged in fisticuffs, apparently with the Invisible Man.
Maybe, he lost. At any rate, the suspect was soon throwing objects at passing cars in the area of 400 South and West Temple.
When officers arrived and approached him, he was ready to take them on, too, waving his belt around his head. That’s when the Taser came out, the suspect was shocked into submission, handcuffed and taken to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation.
No officers were hurt during the incident.
