The provincial Special Investigation Unit is investigating after the Ontario Provincial Police used a Taser to catch a suspect resisting arrest.
OPP were trying to arrest a 42-year-old man who was riding an e-bike without a helmet and known to be prohibited from driving in Canada. Officers tried to arrest the man after noticing him in Tecumseh just before 8 p.m. Wednesday night.
A news release from the OPP says officers were forced to use the Conducted Energy Weapon — a Taser — in order to arrest the man, since he was resisting arrest. He was taken to an area hospital and was treated for minor injuries.
