Police use Taser on fleeing man


Tribune staff reports

The arrest of a man wanted on a parole warrant occurred early Monday morning in Seymour after police used a stun gun to stop him.

Albert Hill, 45, of Seymour initially fled from officers Devlin McMindes and Mike Payne, who went to the 500 block of East Sixth Street after receiving information Hill was in the area.

As Hill ran east on Sixth Street, he was told to stop and also warned he could be tased, police said.

Hill ignored those warnings, and McMindes eventually used his Taser to stop and arrest Hill, who faces an additional charge of resisting law enforcement.

Hill was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown on that charge and the parole warrant at 5:17 a.m. Monday. He was being held without bond pending his initial court hearing.

No injuries were reported to have occurred during the incident, which began at about 4:30 a.m. Monday.
