Video: Police TASER drunk man resisting arrest

The man refused to drop his cigarette and continued to smoke it as police pleaded with him not to resist

WINDSOR, Ontario — Police subdued a man with a Taser 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 and 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 and would not comply. Police again told him he was under arrest, that they did not want to hurt him, and to throw away his cigarette. Instead, he smoked it.

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