Police forced entry into the apartment and Stewart allegedly refused officer commands and he was shocked by a Taser, according to police. The Taser had no effect on Stewart, police said.
Stewart and Rogers grabbed each other and ended up on the living room floor, Rogers testified. Stewart then reached for an officer’s duty weapon. It took about eight officers to place Stewart in handcuffs, according to police.
When questioned, Stewart told officers the spray was garlic cloves and dried aloe leaves.
