Man Takes Stun Gun From Police Officer

A Guelph man is facing multiple charges after allegedly taking a stun gun from a police officer and attempting to use it on Saturday.

Responding to reports of a man unconscious in a vehicle in a Willow Road parking lot around 1 p.m., police discovered the vehicle to be reported stolen. Upon inspection, a man was found asleep inside, surrounded by drug-related items.

Upon waking, the man became confrontational and managed to seize a conducted energy weapon from an officer, attempting to use it. Officers were able to reacquire the stun gun after deploying another conducted energy weapon and arresting the suspect.

A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a small quantity of what is believed to be crystal methamphetamine, several bullets, cash, and a variety of tools associated with breaking and entering, according to the police statement.
