Airport police tased a man at Los Angeles International Airport after he allegedly failed to cooperate with airport security during the screening process, according to NBC Los Angeles.
The incident occurred on Wednesday when the man became uncooperative with Transportation Security Administration officers at Terminal 6 inside LAX and breached security.
Airport police Sgt. Belinda Joseph said the man pushed past an airport police officer before being followed and ultimately arrested. The stun gun was used as the officer was attempting to detain the man at Gate 66.
Actor Verne Troyer captured the dramatic sequence on his phone and posted the clip to his official YouTube channel.
Other witnesses captured images of the incident and posted to social media.
