A 17-year old, accused of burglary, is arrested after a struggle with West Monroe Police.

Police say they spotted Darion Maddox trying to break into a car on Wheelis Street in West Monroe Monday morning.

When police tried to stop Maddox he ran away. This started a foot chase between him and an officer.

Once the officer was close enough he used a taser on Maddox. But, somehow during the arrest Maddox was able to take the taser from the officer.

After a struggle with officers, Maddox was arrested. He’s facing multiple charges, including burglary and resisting arrest.

No bond has been set.
