WASHINGTON - An Occupy D.C. protester was shocked by stun gun Sunday afternoon at McPherson Square, as Park Police were handing out fliers about the upcoming Monday deadline on overnight camping.
U.S. Park Police Sergeant David Schlosser tells WTOP the man got angry about the fliers and confronted officers about the ban.
Schlosser says officers used a Taser on the man when he wouldn't comply with police orders.
Police arrested him and took him to the hospital, after he informed them about a previous medical condition.
The man was taken to George Washington Hospital where he refused treatment and was charged with disturbing the peace.
