Police use Taser on man who was threatening passing motorists
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Schenectady police used a Taser to take down a man who they said used threatening hand gestures to passing cars and became hostile toward officers.
Police said Aaron Poulin, 30, was observed standing in the street while positioning his hands to form the shape of a gun and pointed at motorists as if he was shooting them. Police said Poulin immediately became hostile with officers and lunged at them while verbally threatening them.
Officers deployed a Taser on Poulin and took him into custody. He is charged with resisting arrest and third-degree menacing.
Police said Poulin had an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear on a city code violation.
