COATS, N.C. — A confrontation that saw the town's police chief knocked unconscious Tuesday afternoon led to a manhunt that ended in an arrest just before midnight.

Police Chief Eddie Jaggers tried to shoot a TASER at a suspect he had been chasing. When the TASER malfunctioned, the man knocked him out, Harnett County Sheriff Larry Rollins said.
