BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder's police chief issued a letter Monday defending an officer's use of a Taser against a resident last month -- an incident that prompted the American Civil Liberties Union to ask the department to change its stun-gun policy.

Police fired two Taser rounds at Davis Ware on July 19 near the intersection of Dartmouth Avenue and Dover Drive in south Boulder after a group of people called police to complain that Ware, 26, was harassing them.
