SANTA MONICA (CBSLA.com) — Police used a Taser on a man earlier this week after he threatened them with a large umbrella on a Santa Monica street corner.
The incident occurred around 8 p.m. Monday outside a Starbucks at 7th Street and Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.
Officers responded to the scene after receiving a call about a man swinging an umbrella. Once they arrived, the suspect started jabbing the object at officers and he was hit with a Taser, officials said.
