    I have been browsing this forum for quite a while, and I just decided to make an account on here to share my story today.

    I had just left the T Mobile store down at the Kent Station earlier this afternoon. I walked over to the transit center station to meet a friend who I was suppose to pick up. While waiting, I couldn't help to notice a young man, probably in his early to mid 20's, yelling with a girl around the same age. They were both arguing with each other, and I never caught what originally started it. It was fairly busy there, probably about 15 or so other people, and everyone was sort of minding their own business.

    I was sure to keep an eye on things in case they escalated further. I didn't see any security anywhere in sight. About a minute passes by, and I see the man start putting his hands on the girl. He was grabbing her shirt, and pushing her back. She started yelling at him to let her go, but he started yelling even louder. I figured security would be there soon, seeing how they're normally around, but nothing at all.

    I then walked over to them and asked if there was a problem. The guy immediately turned around and yelled some obscenities at me, telling me to mind my own (explicit) business while still yanking around the girl. I told him that he should let her go, then suddenly, he spits at me, and starts walking over to me in a not so friendly manner. Note I was about 12 or so feet away from him originally. I quickly told him to stop where he's at or I'll taze him. (I was carrying both my Taser M26C and my Beretta 92, both which were concealed)

    He didn't really acknowledge anything I said, and I, not knowing what this guy was going to do, pulled out my taser and quickly fired it at him. Both prongs hit him dead center mass, and he immediately dropped to the ground. The taser normally gives a 30 second charge, but I stopped it after about 4 seconds, assuming he was going to start complying. I told him to stay where he was at, and I called the police. Fortunately, it only took the police a matter of seconds to arrive, as one must have already been in the area.

    The officer showed up, and I gave a report of what happened. Surprisingly the girl in the story gave her story too, and thankfully she did say that the man put his hands on her and started pushing her around. The officer also got several reports from other people whom were present, and everyone's story added up. One citizen did mention that he heard me say that I will tase him if he doesn't stop.

    After all the dust was settled, the man was arrested on assault in the 4th degree, and took down my information. He said that I may be summoned to court by the prosecutor as a witness, if the man decides to plead not guilty and take it to trial. Chances are slim that he will, considering the evidence that's stacked against him, but just in case..

    Glad I had my taser on me. I feel that was a situation that called for it.

    What did that cost you, a $40 shot? Or can you still use the rest of it? Or heck, I don't even know the technical stuff about tasers sooooo yeaaaa....

    Good thing though, that the female let the officers know wassup and didn't protect him, otherwise she might get stuck in the same place and get hurt again and again without anybody knowing.

    But then again they might not have been involved directly with each other.... all speculation...

    I have a Taser C2, and Taser will replace your cartridge for free if you send them a copy of the police report stating you used the taser. They're $50.00 for two cartridges.

    Just wondering, and you may not be able to answer, but, had you not had the tazer, would you have drawn your weapon?

    Wow that looks like one large taser? Where do you carry these concealed self defense weapons and how do you cover them up?

    Maybe he was taken to RJC or Seattle. Very possible if it was KCSO or KCMP

    If so, what's up with all of the stories lately? That looks like it took some time to come up with.

    There is just too much with the story that is off.

    Too much detail where there shouldn't be, and not enough detail where there should be if one were looking to have their story taken seriously.

    Also, the OP is a new poster that posted the story in two places at once, and hasn't follow up.

    (shrug) O well, keeps us sharp, and a bit of skepticism is healthy.

    You know it is BS when you read that.:? The "girl" always stands up for the loser.

    Agreed.

    That is why domestic violence calls are so dangerous. You get the attacker off the victim and then the victim starts beating at you too - now you have two attackers.

    The story sounds like it's unfounded and BS. Too bad but it does bring up using a taser or some less than lethal force for thosesituation that lethal force is really in the grey area.

    Taser or peper spray. Those cartridges can be a bit spendy but if you can get replacements (for free)that would be great.

    Right. They will replace whatever you have to leave behind, as long as it mentions it in the police report.
