BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man was shot five times by a stun gun before deputies were finally able to take him into custody during a traffic stop.

The Bradenton Herald (https://bit.ly/1hxbb9C ) reports 21-year-old Kevin Charlson was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning for treatment of abrasions on his face, back, knees, chin, hands and arms.

He’s accused of driving with a suspended driver’s license, resisting arrest, battery on a law enforcement officer and possession of marijuana.

Officials say Charlson resisted deputies’ attempt to arrest him. He twisted away from two deputies and was taken to the ground. A third deputy fired his stun gun five times until he stopped resisting arrest.

Charlson is in the Manatee County Jail. Records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
