Lakeport man tasered after foot chase

LAKEPORT – A Lakeport man was tasered Tuesday night after leading deputies on a foot chase.

David Wayne Howard, 19, was tasered during the incident, according to Chief Deputy James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Bauman said a training team of two deputies in a patrol car was dispatched to the Robin Hill area on the report of a party in a field late Tuesday night.

The deputies located an intoxicated male adult walking down the middle of the road toward the patrol car, said Bauman.

When they attempted to stop and detain him, Bauman said Howard turned and ran.

“One deputy chased him down and ultimately had to tase him to get him to stop running,” said Bauman.

Lakeport Fire responded to check Howard over before he was taken to the jail, Bauman added.

Howard was arrested on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and being drunk in public, and two misdemeanor bench warrants, according to jail records.
