Barrie, Ontario cops need taser to slow angry man down

This report gives no indication of what constitutes "upset and violent." Nor does it say whether or not the man was armed or "combative."

A Barrie man was given an electric shock by Taser Tuesday night after Barrie police paid him a visit.

Officers were called to a rooming house on McDonald Street about a man threatening to stab other tenants. When police confronted the 34-year-old man, he became upset and violent. Officers pulled out a Taser and used it on the man, which helped make a safe arrest.

The man was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital under the Mental Health Act. He will be given a psychiatric assessment. No charges were laid.
