Man tasered after assault at Maroochydore home

A 25-YEAR-old man was tasered by police last night after he refused to back away from a Maroochydore home.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said the man, who was either intoxicated or drug-affected, was assaulting a person at an address on Millwell Rd, Maroochydore and police were called.

The spokesman said officers arrived on scene about 9.50pm and saw the man was very agitated and would not stop when warned by police.

The man was tasered, brought under control and taken to the Maroochydore watch-house.
