Fast and oh, so fresh

It began with what should have been a very simple traffic stop at about 2 am, Friday, September 14 in Sheboygan WI. That was until the 34 year-old man tossed a cigarette pack out the window of his car and then tried to run.

The Sheboygan office gave chase to the suspect and when he caught up to him, punched him in the head and knocked him to the ground. At that point, the suspect probably should have chosen to stay down but he didn't. He tried to run again and a second officer approached while he was struggling with the first. Either the second officer was not very good with a stun gun or he just was covering the bases, he ended up getting both of them with it.

The report doesn't state how the first officer did after getting stunned by his "brother in blue" but the suspect had to be stunned a second time before he could be handcuffed. The cigarette pack he had tossed from the car was found to contain three-fourths of an ounce of cocaine. His vehicle was searched and police were a bit surprized to find a live chicken in the trunk which the suspect claimed he had just gotten from a local fast food restaurant.

I hadn't realized that "live" was included in the new suggestions for restaurants to improve their patrons health. The suspect ended up being taken to the hospital where he got six stitches for two cuts to his face and the police recommended charges including operating while intoxicated, resisting arrest and cocaine possession with intent to deliver. The chicken was taken to the Sheboygan County Humane Society and there was no report of it being charged with anything at this moment.
