WLVL reports on some crime fighting excitement in rural Gasport...

Sheriff's deputies used a taser around 9:00 Tuesday night as they were arresting a 31 year old Lockport man for alleged drunk driving.

Colin Baker of 7350 Ellicott Road was stopped at Orangeport and Humphrey Roads after he allegedly crossed the center line.

They said an open bottle of beer was in the center console. Baker was asked several times to get out of the truck but he told them he was an American with rights and he didn't have to follow their orders. A Middleport Police 0fficer showed up to help and the two officers used a taser, pepper spray, and physical force to get him out. He was charged with DWI, drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle, failure to keep right, and resisting arrest.
