    Miami Police responded to an incident inside a Brickell high rise apartment where one of their own ended up being treated for an injury after having to use his taser on a suspect.

    Crews arrived at the Yacht Club at Brickell apartment complex, located at 1111 Brickell Bay Drive, shortly before 10 a.m. after reports of a disturbance inside. According to police, one home owner said her 19-year-old son was being violent and destroying property.

    Chopper 6 flew over the scene, where an officer could be seen with a bandage on his head – both he and the teenager were treated for injuries at the scene. The officer was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he is expected to be okay.

    The teen was arrested. Officials did not say how either was hurt or at what point the officer used his taser.
