Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 22-Aug-2011

Bryan Young, 35, was tasered and arrested after he attempted to escape officers during a routine DUI sobriety checkpoint.

According to the Lake Elsinore-Wildomar Patch, the Lake Elsinore man was about to go through a checkpoint when he made a U-turn to go in the opposite direction. Once officers approached Young, he displayed symptoms of driving under the influence of drugs and later admitted to being in possession of marijuana.

When an officer led the motorist away from his vehicle, Young attempted to run off but was stopped when a second officer tasered him.  Upon further investigation, officers found Young was a convicted felon serving probation for domestic violence and he had a loaded .38-caliber handgun as well as marijuana in his vehicle. Young has been arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, probation violation and driving under the influence of drugs.
