SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - Salinas police used a stun gun to subdue a Salinas man who allegedly got into a confrontation with a coach at a youth football game and then turned belligerent when officers showed up to talk with him.
The Monterey County Herald reports that the officers used the Taser on 41-year-old David Ray Camel after he removed his shirt, balled up his fists in a fighting stance and refused to follow orders.
Camel was taken from the football game at North Salinas High School to a local hospital. The Herald quotes Salinas police as saying he was under the influence of alcohol and medication.
He was released on charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication.
