A Sunrise man was zapped with a stun gun after being detained for breaking his mother's furniture, authorities said.
Sean Edwin Beard, 26, was arrested Tuesday and faces charges including resisting an officer, obstruction with violence and criminal mischief. He was released from jail on Wednesday on $500 bond. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
Beard's mother was outside her house when authorities arrived, and she told them her son was breaking household items, according to a complaint affidavit.
Beard, who was sweating and breathing heavily, told the officer: "if you touch me I will kick your f------- a--," the complaint said.
The officer then pulled out his Taser but did not use it. Looking inside the house, the officer saw a hole in the wall and a broken coffee table, the affidavit said.
Once another officer arrived, Sean Beard took off and jumped over a wall, but he went back to his mother's home. The officer ordered him to the ground, but he said it was too hot, the affidavit said.
When Beard was eventually handcuffed and about to be searched, he reached into his pocket and pulled out his telephone, wallet and a small plastic bag containing a green leafy substance, which later tested positive for cannabis, the report said.
Beard kept tensing his body, refusing to get into the patrol car. Once he did, he kept hitting the bars next to the windows with his head.
"We then had to take Sean out of the car and he once again braced and tensed and he had his hands in front of his body again," the affidavit said.
At some point, an officer zapped him twice, and he then complied. He was then taken to Westside Regional Hospital for medical clearance.
