Police use stun gun on man who resisted arrest

June 19. 2018 9:23PM

MANCHESTER — Police used a stun gun on a 23-year-old city man twice and the man faces charges of disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest after police said he refused to pull over after running a red light.

According to a news release, an officer tried to pull over Dominic Nutting of Salisbury Street after seeing Nutting run a red light at Hanover Street and Mammoth Road about midnight Tuesday.

Instead, Nutting drove to his home, parked a 2007 Jeep and refused to comply with the officer, who had told him he was under arrest. When the officer grabbed his arm, Nutting allegedly backed away and refused to show his hands, police said. Police said a stun gun was used on Nutting, with little effect.

As the officer again tried to place Nutting in custody, Nutting allegedly fought with him and a stun gun was used again before Nutting was arrested, police said.

Nutting was scheduled to appear in Manchester circuit court on Tuesday, police said.
