NORWALK, Conn. — A Norwalk man held on narcotics charges while he was at Norwalk Hospital was charged with interfering with a police officer early Monday, police said.
Shawn Milner, who was being treated for a medical condition not related to his earlier arrest, went to the restroom at 2 a.m., police said. When he returned, officers asked him to return to bed, police said. He refused and became verbally combative, police said.
Officers verbally told Milner to calm down, but he continued to resist, police said. An officer used a Taser in “Drive-Stun” mode, which does not deploy projectiles from the Taser, police said. He then returned to his bed, police said.
Earlier, at 1:15 a.m., Milner had been whispering into a phone and hiding under the bedsheets, despite instructions from officers that he was not allowed to make phone calls, police said.
Police said Milner resisted the officers with one of his hands, which was not in handcuffs, police said.
Police had charged Milner Tuesday with possession of narcotics and sale/possession within distance of a school and two charges of illegal possession near school, police said.
Milner was charged with interfering with an officer in Monday’s incident. His bond was set at $5,000, and his court date is set for Feb. 26, police said.
