A 19-year-old man could have walked away with a ticket, but instead he made a decision that would send him to jail.
Idalou Police say Brandon Solis was being disruptive in a grocery store. Authorities went to his house to give him a ticket, but he refused to cooperate with police. That's when the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office and New Deal Police arrived to help. After a short struggle, Solis was finally taken into custody. Idalou Police Chief Brian Frieda says it's in situations like this one that tasers would be useful. He says in the past two weeks officers have been injured trying to arrest suspects.
"I honestly believe if we had the use of tasers the officer would not have been injured in any shape form or fashion and probably the suspect would have been apprehended much easier," Idalou Police Chief Brian Frieda said.
Solis will be booked into the Lubbock County Jail on disorderly conduct, among other charges.
