CHEEKTOWAGA, NY — Cheektowaga police did not use excessive force when tasering a teen suspected of shoplifting at Walden Galleria in December, according to Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III.

Sedita said his office interviewed police officers at the scene and watched mall video during its investigation into the arrest of Anthony Rose, 20, of Cheektowaga, on obstruction, harassment, disorderly conduct and drug possession charges.
