Several callers reported a man, later identified as Donald Shaw (2/18/82), stopping vehicles and pounding on their hoods. A person attempted to get Shaw out of the roadway but he became combative. Officers arrived and ordered Shaw to the ground. Shaw began to comply, but then immediately jumped up and ran toward a witness with his fists clenched, shouting threats. An officer deployed his Taser to stop the assault and took Shaw into custody. Officers booked Shaw into jail on several charges, including disturbing the peace and assault.
