Plymouth Police Use Taser to Get Intoxicated Man Out of Michigan Street

Plymouth Police say they had to use a taser to get an intoxicated man out of the middle of Michigan Street Wednesday morning. An officer says he was flagged down around 7:45 a.m., due to concerns about an intoxicated male walking in the traffic lanes near Parkside Mini Mart.

He says he pulled his squad car in front of the man and tried to get him to move over to the sidewalk. Instead, he reportedly started running away and yelling. Police say the man was finally stopped in the road’s turn lane, after a taser was deployed.

The man, identified as Adan Vargas, 44, of Plymouth, was taken into custody. Plymouth EMS then took him to the hospital, where he was admitted, due to concerns about a high level chemical in his blood.
