According to a news release from police, officers were called to a home in the 2100 block of Rose St. for a report on an unwanted guest. The man in question had outstanding warrants for his arrest, and when officers attempted to make the arrest he became aggressive.
An officer discharged a CEW or Taser, and the man was successfully taken into custody.
