WYANDOTTE – Officers here used aerosol subject control spray on a man arrested for driving with a suspended license June 17.

Officers pulled over the 29-year-old resident about noon that day while he was driving a motor scooter in the left lane west on Eureka near 11th with his young son, who was not wearing a helmet.

Officers pulled him over and found his license was expired and he had several active warrants. According to the report, one officer attempted to guide the man into the back of his squad car when the man spun around and slipped from his grasp.

The officer applied the spray, a combination of “tear gas” and “pepper spray,” used to gain control of resistive or combative subjects.

He was then transported to the police station and booked.
