Dickinson man taken to hospital after police use Taser on him three times

A 19-year-old Dickinson man was taken to the hospital after being Tased three times early Saturday morning in an effort to subdue him.

In the struggle, at least two Dickinson Police officers were hit or kicked by William Clark, who was arrested for assaulting a peace officer, resisting arrest, ingesting a controlled substance and disorderly conduct, Detective Terry Oestreich said.

Officers responded to a call because the young man was allegedly jumping around without a shirt while yelling profanities, Oestreich said. Officers gave Clark orders to put his hands down and back away, but he allegedly didn't comply.
