PORTLAND, Ore. - A YouTube video shows police officers shocking a man with a taser at Portland International Airport on June 21.
Port of Portland police said 25-year-old Tejawn Edwards of Henderson, Nev., was one of three people who were visibly intoxicated and weren’t allowed to board their Spirit Airlines flight.
Police said Edwards became hostile, threatening to kill them and throwing punches, so an officer fired a Taser to contain him.
Edwards was charged with trespassing, resisting arrest and attempted assault of a public safety officer and taken to the Multnomah County jail.
