Video: Utah cops deploy TASERs, pursue wildly evasive suspect

SALT LAKE CITY — Cell phone video has been released capturing police as they deploy TASERs and engage in a lengthy foot pursuit with a suspect who repeatedly refuses to surrender. 

Fox 13 reports police attempted to apprehend suspect Steven Carsello after he got in a fight with another man and chased him around a parking lot with an antenna he ripped off of a parked car.

Carsello also threatened bystanders with a broken bottle after they tried to intervene in the fight. 

The video begins after Carsello fought with officers, who then deployed TASERs multiple times.

Carsello continued to flee — climbing onto the back of a truck and crawling underneath it before officers were able to subdue him.

Carsello now faces charges of aggravated assault/criminal mischief and resisting arrest, according to the report.
