Officers were called to the area of Broadway and Pennsylvania Avenue at 1:22 a.m., police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said, after someone called about a man carrying a glass pipe and screaming randomly in the street.
When they arrived, officers found a man who told them he was under the influence of the drug LSD and was prepared to fight them, Huntley said. After the man refused to cooperate several times, officers shot him with a Taser.
“He became very combative,” Huntley said, and he received four shocks through the electric probes before he calmed down enough for officers to chain his hands and legs together.
The man continued to fight with officers in an ambulance as he was taken to Boulder Community Hospital, she said.
The suspect was released from the hospital Wednesday before officers could arrest him. His name is being withheld until officers find him, Huntley said. He faces possible charges of obstructing police, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
