Police say they were forced to use a stun gun to subdue a man after he grew violent with officers.

Springs police were called to the 1800 block of Monterey Road around 2 a.m. Saturday on reports of a disturbance. Officers say they located several people who had been involved in the incident, and the investigation ultimately led them to the home of 25-year-old Michael Ridgeway.

Police say Ridgeway was combative with officers, and slapped one of the officers in the head. Officers then reportedly used a stun gun to bring Ridgeway under control and into custody.
