Posted May 15
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police say they twice used their Tasers before they were able to subdue a 17-year-old who was attacking his girlfriend outside a North Carolina high school.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said in a news release Monday that officers used their electric-shock weapons when trying to restrain the man, who was assaulting a 16-year-old outside Garinger High School.
Officers say that when they tried to get the female student to safety, the man continued to assault her and also attacked the officers.
Two officers deployed their non-lethal weapons before the assaults ended and the suspect was taken into custody.
The 17-year-old is charged with assault and resisting a public officer.
