Aside from the guy being loopy, which is sad, this incident is funny.
(And instructive, for those who think electric 'weapons' will protect them.)
I'm also interested in the officers' belief that an electric shock (which has, in some people, caused death) is a lesser use of force than "grabbing him and pinning him to the ground". Certainly the first is safer for the officers.Officers tried to arrest the man, but he kept swinging the light saber at them...
One tried to use his Taser on the suspect but the device didn't work.
Another officer used his Taser and made contact, but the man knocked one of the wires away with the light saber.
The officers finally arrested the man after grabbing him and pinning him to the ground.
... None of the victims of the light saber assault needed medical attention.
