LAWTEY, Fla. -- A man was subdued during a traffic stop after a police officer used a stun gun on him in northern Florida.
Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said Lawtey Police Officer Jay Raulerson was notified by passing motorists about a silver Toyota stopped in the median with the driver attempting to wave down vehicles.
As the officer pulled up to give assistance, his dash camera video shows the driver suddenly exiting his vehicle, and according to Sheriff Smith, "aggressively approached Officer Raulerson."
Raulerson fired a stun gun at the man and brought the situation under control, handcuffing him.
The Sheriff's Office says the man was taken into custody for a medical evaluation prior to pursuing any criminal charges.
