Police tased, tackled man who led them on chase

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police arrested a man after he led them on a foot chase.

According to the incident report, police responded to the 800-block of Huntington on Saturday at 8:30 p.m.

When they arrived, they saw two black men "arguing and cursing at each other."

An officer yelled at the men to stop. After being demanded to stop fighting, Kevion Black, 20, ran.

Police chased Black down several blocks until they lost track of him.

Moments later, an officer spotted Black sitting on a residence's front porch, that is when he ran from police again.

Because Black did not stop, one officer tased him and another tackled him to the ground.

The other man involved in the argument claimed Black punched him in the face several times.

The officer did not see any visible injuries.

Black was arrested and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center and cited for fleeing, obstruction of governmental operations and disorderly conduct.
