Man tased, arrested after running from police

Police said a caller reported a suspicious man walking in the middle of the road around 6 p.m.

When police arrived on scene, the man lied about his name and age and then tried to run from officers. Garden City Police say they tased the man and then arrested him.

A witness told KTVB that she was driving by when she saw police draw their guns. She said in light of recent events across the nation, she is glad police didn't have to use them.

The man, who has not been identified, was arrested and booked into the Ada County Jail for resisting arrest and giving false information to police.
