Iowa Man Grabbed Sidearm, Stun Gun In Struggle with Two Cops

September 22, 2011  | 

Two Des Moines (Iowa) Police officers eventually arrested a man who initiated a struggle with them, after the man attempted to grab one officer's gun and the other officer's TASER.

Officers Timothy Nading and Mandy Weltz arrived at the Git-N-Go convenience store at 9:29 p.m. Wednesday. Ernest Mack became agitated when the clerk refused to donate beer and dried beef, and officers told him to calm down.

During a physical confrontation, Officer Weltz attempted to use her stun gun twice. When Mack reached for Officer Nading's sidearm, Officer Weltz drew her weapon and he stopped fighting.
