FIFE, Wash. --
Police said a stun gun was used on a man multiple times after he resisted an officer during a traffic stop in Fife.
According to Fife police Lt. Tom Thompson, a Fife officer made a traffic stop on the on ramp of southbound I-5 at the Port of Tacoma Road.
Thompson said the driver challenged and threatened the officer, who used a stun gun on the man.
Thompson said the man told the officer, "I think I can take you," during the altercation.
Police said the stun gun had no effect the first time it was used, so the officer used the stun gun a second time. When the driver tried to get into his car, the officer once again applied the stun gun and the man was then taken into custody.
Thompson said the man was driving on a suspended license and was carrying methamphetamine.
Video from Chopper 7 showed numerous police and fire vehicles at the scene.
The officer was not hurt.
