An officer arrived and ordered the 26-year-old man to get on the ground, but the man would not respond or comply with the officer’s order. Police say that once the man replied "No," to the officer’s commands and took "a fighting posture," the officer deployed his taser.

He was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of public intoxication, trespassing and resisting arrest.
