NORWALK, Conn. – A suspect was hit with a stun gun while in the Norwalk Police lockup after being arrested on charges of assaulting a police officer early Sunday, according to police reports.

Officers were called to break up a fight outside the Moose Lodge on South Main Street at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, police said. Most of the people there dispersed when officers arrived, but Phillip Azor, Jr., 21, of Bridgeport continued to yell obscenities at another patron, police said.

When officers stepped between the two men, Azor picked up a liquor bottle and lunged at a sergeant while continuing to yell obscenities, according to the arrest report. Azor also spit on officers attempting to arrest him, and kicked two officers during a struggle on the ground while he was arrested, according to the police report.

While at Norwalk Police headquarters, Azor continued swearing, and again spat upon officers during the booking process, police said. An officer deployed a Taser on Azor to stop the outburst, according to the police report. He was then taken to Norwalk Hospital for treatment.

Azor was charged with three counts of assault on a peace officer, interfering with police and a breach of the peace Sunday. He was held on $125,000 bond, and is due in court on April 4.

"An officer deployed a Taser on Azor to stop the outburst"
So basically they tasered this guy because he was yelling at them

CHIEF ARE YOU AWAKE.????

The norwalk police department has been a complete and total failure for years

Glad to see the NPD doing a great job. Get the scum off the streets.

You may want to read the comments as what I see are individuals condemning the abusive practices of the NPD.. If you think the police behaving in this fashion is ok I would suggest that you move to Russia. The NPD clearly over uses the Taser and I also would like to see an investigation into this abuse. It seems that any arrest that the failures of the NPD make involves the taser. Maybe the out of town children the we are hiring is the problem

You make a very good point. Many in Norwalk are extremely unhappy with the NPD. Actually the only ones that seem to be happy with them are the cop themselves and of course the criminals as they don't get caught,
This over use of the taser shows just how out of control the NPD is.

How can any of you defend this piece of trash?

This Scumbag has been arrested at least 4 times before in Bpt & NH, He got Probation, revoked, NO FINES, yet he still roams the streets here Norwalk. The NPD did us ALL a favor & getting this lowlife off the streets.

The Norwalk police department is a bunch of cowards that can not di anything without the use of the stun gun. Its time the department of justice looks into this over use of this weapon by the NPD.
