A Worthington Division of Police officer inadvertently was hit by a colleague's electroshock weapon while a man reportedly was resisting arrest.
Officers responded to a call of a man in an argument with his parents on the 6600 block of Eastland Court on the night of Sept. 5, according to reports.
When officers arrived, the 28-year-old man was reportedly "extremely intoxicated" and was described as "violent and turbulent toward officers." When they attempted to take the man into custody, he allegedly resisted.
While multiple officers were attempting to subdue him, one shot a pronged electroshock weapon at the suspect. One prong hit the suspect, but another hit the officer who was touching him, shocking both.
The officer was treated and recovered.
The man was charged with obstruction of official business and resisting arrest and was transported to the Franklin County jail.
