Police use taser to subdue, arrest man at Manchester library

September 25. 2018 1:22PM

MANCHESTER — Police on Monday afternoon arrested a man they said was trespassing at the city library on Pine Street, who refused to leave and resisted arrest.

Officers were called about 4:30 p.m. and were told by a security officer that Clifford Etadafimue, 21, no fixed address, was back in the library after being ordered out last week, police said.

Police asked Etadafimue to leave the library, but he ignored an officer’s commands and struggled with officers when they tried to arrest him for criminal trespass, police said.

According to a news release, Etadafimue resisted attempts to place him in handcuffs, flailed his arms and legs and repeatedly kicked an officer in the knee before police used a taser to subdue him.

Etadafimue was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and resisting arrest, police said. He was scheduled to appear in Manchester circuit court Tuesday.
