Officers located the suspect outside the home. He was “remarkably agitated” and yelled at the police to fight him.

It also struck the driver’s side window of a police vehicle, police said.

Officers pulled out a taser gun with the aim of reducing the escalation of the confrontation, but the man did not comply. Instead, he hit a mirror of a vehicle parked in the driveway.
