Police Use Taser On Man Outside A Local Bar

A brawl outside a Lexington bar early Thursday morning sent two men to jail after police used a Taser on one of the suspects.

Police were called to Saddle Ridge on South Broadway for a disorder.

Once a sergeant arrived on the scene, police say one of the suspects ripped the sergeant's uniform.

When police say the suspect didn't back down, police used a taser on him.

James Thompkins is charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief, and failing to disperse.

Another man, Demetrius Guoins, was taken to jail. He's charged with failing to disperse.
