DOVER, Del. (AP) — Authorities say officers used a stun gun on a man who fled a traffic stop and hit an officer.
Media outlets report that Dover police say officers stopped a car Friday afternoon and smelled marijuana.
Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman says officers detained the driver, 32-year-old Ashley Everett, and the passenger, 42-year-old Keyatak Flowers, and found a spring-assisted knife.
Hoffman says when Flowers fled and tried to hide a bag containing drugs, officers used a stun gun to stop him. Police say Flowers hit an officer and police used the stun gun again.
