Two charged following disturbance in Hagerstown

November 27, 2008

A Hagerstown man was tased Thursday night after he resisted arrest during a disturbance on Noland Drive, Sgt. Elmer Hurd of the Hagerstown Police Department said.

About 6:10 p.m., police responded to a call for a disturbance at 1040D Noland Drive and found a group of people in an argument and a man passed out in the yard, Hurd said.

The people at the house wanted the unconscious man removed, but another man, Bert Jameson, 38, of 730 W. Washington St., became disorderly, Hurd said.

When police attempted to arrest Jameson, he resisted, and officers tased him, Hurd said.

While officers were dealing with Jameson, the unconscious man, Leroy Frazier, 51, of Falling Waters, W.Va., came to and became disorderly as well, Hurd said.
