Windsor police use TASER CEW to subdue a man downtown

WINDSOR, Ontario — Police subdued a man with a TASER CEW in downtown Windsor Thursday night after he resisted arrest in a dramatic confrontation that was caught on video by a Windsor Star reporter.

The video shows police telling the man to get on his knees & that he was under arrest for intoxication outside the bar a half flight down from street level. Though he started to kneel down he then stood & would not comply. Police again told him he was under arrest, that they did not want to hurt him, & to throw away his cigarette. Instead, he smoked it.

When a number of police tried to arrest him, he pulled away & had almost slipped out of his jacket when an officer used a TASER CEW on him. He screamed & dropped to the ground, where he was handcuffed.
