WESTON, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says a trooper and a passenger in a car he had stopped got into an altercation and both were taken to the hospital.

Sgt. Mark Wysocky says the trooper stopped the car for speeding Tuesday night on Interstate 75 near Weston. As the trooper approached the passenger-side window to speak with the driver, the passenger got out of the vehicle.

Wysocki says the passenger started arguing with the trooper. The trooper used a stun gun on the passenger.

Both were taken to nearby Cleveland Clinic with minor injuries.

Wysocki told the South Florida Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1HpWyAF ) the passenger will likely be arrested. The driver will also be cited for speeding.

The names of the trooper, the driver and the passenger weren’t released.
