tell Patch a woman was tasered during an incident at
According to Captain Gary Hoelzer, an officer on patrol made an investigative stop around 12:45 a.m. on March 27 when he noticed what he considered suspicious behavior.
According to an incident report provided by police, the officer was patrolling behind the businesses of Woods Mill Center in the 14300 block of South Outer 40 when he noticed a man slouched down in a vehicle behind a closed business. Police said the 30-year-old male from Chesterfield was uncooperative when police tried to investigate the situation.
Hoezler said that man was subsequently found in possession of what is believe to be marijuana.
During this process, a 35-year-old female from Ballwin, who is an acquaintance of the man, tried to intervene between the man and police. Hoelzer said that's when the taser was deployed, but he points out it was used in "stun" mode. The incident report states, "The taser had to be used in the touch-stun mode to get her into custody."
"In other words, she was not hit with darts. It was in stun mode," Hoelzer tells Patch.
Hoelzer said the woman was arrested for interfering with a lawful detention and resisting arrest.
The incident report states the man was also arrested for resisting a lawful detention and possession of a controlled substance believed to be marijuana.
Both have since been released on bond and have a court date of April 19 in Town and Country Municipal Court.
According to the incident report, two officers were injured during the incident but have since returned to duty.
