Ariz. police use TASER to stop combative drug suspect

The Arizona Daily Sun

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — An alleged drug dealer was arrested early Tuesday on several charges, including assault on a police officer, after she struggled with officers during a traffic stop.

Flagstaff police stopped the blue Honda the woman was riding in near North Fourth Street and East Second Avenue at about 1:30 a.m. for driving with its brights on. Officers arrested the 18-year-old man driving the car for driving on a suspended license and warrants and prepared to tow the car. However, the female passenger refused to get out of the car, and allegedly fought with officers from her seat, punching one in the face with a closed fist. The woman was subdued with a Taser and arrested. Nobody was badly hurt during the exchange.
