Police use Taser to subdue man

Barrie police used a Taser to help arrest a six-foot-two, 350-pound man, yesterday.

Officers were called to a Blake Street home about a 24-year-old with a history of mental health issues who was reportedly out of control.

Police say the man was defiant when officers arrived and a Taser was used to incapacitate him, until he could be handcuffed.

He was then taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for assessment.
