PORTLAND, Maine — A New York man was subdued by Taser early Monday morning after trying to escape arrest by taking a Portland police officer's holstered gun, city police said.

Fitzgerald Carryl, 30, was charged with assault on a police officer and aggravated reckless conduct for his alleged actions, which took place while he was being taken into custody on a gun charge.

With the help of a police dog, Lt. Clifford Strout allegedly discovered a loaded .45-caliber handgun in the gray 2002 Acura that Carryl and Kaemar Wilson, 27, of New York were in during a traffic stop around 12:30 a.m. Monday, a police announcement stated. The police report does not say which man was driving.
