Police Utilize Taser to Subdue Suspect

Los Angeles: Officers used a taser to subdue a man who led them on a car chase in East Los Angeles Friday. The man refused to surrender after he was stopped by police.

On May 25, 2007, shortly after midnight, officers were dispatched to a domestic violence call in the 1100 block of Calada Street in Boyle Heights. Police were told that Fernando Camacho, 30, had abducted his child and made threats toward a woman.

While officers were talking to the woman in her home, they saw Camacho drive past and attempted to detain him. Camacho refused to stop his vehicle and led police on a car chase that ended in the 3500 block of 7th Street.

Police stopped the vehicle and ordered Camacho to get out. After he refused to cooperate, a taser was used to subdue him. The suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

Camacho was taken to USC Medical Center where he was hospitalized for his injuries. He was later booked for making criminal threats.

None of the officers was injured. Force investigation responded to the scene and is handling the investigation.
