Tech student tased for not cooperating with police

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock police tased a young man in front of a large group of people on Saturday; and much of the incident is captured on video. It happened near 24th and Geneva in Tech Terrace Park. This was Saturday during a yearly event called Tour de Tech Terrace.

The video depicts several Tech students booing the police in disapproval. Police say the young man was uncooperative and tased on his back right shoulder. They say he did not follow officers instructions to move, and did not cooperate with officers as they tried to handcuff him. 

Police have identified him as Hunter Temperton. He was arrested for resisting arrest, evading arrest, failure to identify and public intoxication.
