TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) – A south-central Idaho man who authorities say refused police commands and taunted police by telling them to use a stun gun on him got exactly that.
The Times-News reports that 23-year-old Michael K. Brubaker of Twin Falls earlier this week pleaded not guilty to resisting or obstructing officers and battery on an officer.
He’s been released on his own recognizance.
Twin Falls police say that on Sunday morning they saw Brubaker running from a fight and that when they confronted him he took up a boxing stance and yelled “Taze me” along with profanities.
Police say Brubaker grabbed an officer and ripped a radio from the officer’s shirt.
Police say Brubaker continued to fight even after being hit with a baton, so an officer used a stun gun.
