Man with gun subdued with Taser

Anne Arundel County police said they used a Taser shock device yesterday to subdue an armed Severn man.

Sylvester George, 25, was carrying a .38-caliber pistol in his pocket after he ran from police about 1 a.m., police said. He is charged with consuming alcoholic beverages in a public place, possession of a concealed deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

Mr. George and a group of other men were approached by officers in a apartment complex when police said he ran.

Police said they chased him, and he reached into his pants pocket. When he refused to put his hands up after police ordered him to, an officer used his Taser.

This was the department’s second use of a Taser since officers began carrying them June 1 and police said they have also been used on three other occasions to take a suspect into custody.
