The officers were led to the 200 block of Isabel Street where they located the male inside the vehicle.

The owner of the vehicle eventually unlocked the car and officers continued to ask the male to exit, but the male again refused.

As officers attempted to remove the male, he began to fight with them. A conducted energy weapon (“Taser”) was used in an attempt to gain compliance from the male who continued to act aggressively.
