Davis police use Taser to subdue man following family dispute

Davis police used a Taser to subdue a man who allegedly assaulted his brother and other family members.

Police were called to an apartment at 2324 Shasta Drive about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday regarding a disturbance. Jose Paniagua, 30, of Davis had become upset with his brother for not letting him use a cell phone, according to a Police Department news release. Paniagua allegedly assaulted his brother and other family members and began breaking things in the apartment.

A police officer arrived and confronted Paniagua inside the apartment. Paniagua then picked up a large shard of glass to arm himself, and disregarded numerous commands from the officer directing him to disarm himself and cooperate, officials said.

When Paniagua advanced on the officer inside the apartment, the officer used a Taser to subdue him and take him into custody, according to the news release.

Paniagua was treated by paramedics and booked at Yolo County Jail on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer.
