EDWARDS A man who refused to leave a bar bathroom was Tasered by police twice after a struggle, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report. Two men were fighting at the Gore Range Brewery and a sheriff’s deputy arrested one of the men. The man told police he had to urinate, so a deputy led him into the bathroom. The man laid on the ground and tried to slide his handcuffs to his front. The deputy released the man’s right hand and held his left arm straight so that he could control the man. Then another man entered the bathroom and began talking to the urinating man. Police told him to leave, and he refused. Two deputies grabbed him and tried to remove him from the restroom, but the man held onto dividers between the urinals. A deputy told the man he was under arrest and the man refused to put his hands behind his back. The deputy Tasered the man and then accidentally Tasered himself. After the second Taser, the deputy stopped using it because the electric current had no effect on the man, the report states. The urinating man was arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order, obstructing a peace officer and disorderly conduct. The man who was Tasered was neither arrested nor ticketed.
