BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida man was shot five times by a stun gun before deputies were finally able to take him into custody during a traffic stop.
The Bradenton Herald reports 21-year-old Kevin Charlson was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning for treatment of abrasions on his face, back, knees, chin, hands and arms.
He's accused of driving with a suspended driver's license, resisting arrest, battery on a law enforcement officer and possession of marijuana.
Officials say Charlson resisted deputies' attempt to arrest him. He twisted away from two deputies and was taken to the ground. A third deputy fired his stun gun five times until he stopped resisting arrest.
Charlson is in the Manatee County Jail. Records don't indicate whether he has an attorney.
