Norwalk Police Taser Man During Marijuana Arrest

NORWALK, Conn. – A 30-year-old Norwalk man was treated for minor injuries at Norwalk Hospital on Tuesday after he was tasered during a marijuana arrest, according to police.

Jose Diaz, of Cedar Street, suffered a small abrasion on his forehead and was treated and released from the hospital, said Police Sgt. James Boff.

Diaz and a friend, Edgar Garrido, 28, of Woodbury Avenue, Norwalk, were seen acting suspiciously while sitting in a car parked on Garner Street just after 9 p.m., police said.

Officers approached the vehicle, smelled marijuana and asked the two to get out of the car. Diaz refused repeated orders to exit the vehicle, and as a result he was tasered, police said.

Diaz was charged with misdemeanor interfering with an officer and possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana. Garrido was charged with possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana.

Diaz was released after posting $2,500 bond and Garrido was released after posting $150 bond. Both are scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on April 4.
