A man suspected of possessing drugs was taken to Miami Valley Hospital after he wrecked his car and was Tased by police when they said he didn’t show them his hands.
Anaris Reginald Cross Powell, 22, was in good condition Thursday at Miami Valley Hospital after Dayton police said he resisted arrest and failed to comply with the order of a police officer at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to a police incident report.
Powell was headed north on Catalpa Drive when police stopped him because of the dark tinted windows on his 2004 black Pontiac Grand Prix. He drove off from the stop and then hit a tree about 11 blocks away, according to the report.
While sitting in the wrecked vehicle, Powell would not comply with police orders to keep his hands visible. One of the officers fired a Taser at him several times before he was placed in handcuffs, according to the report.
Rescue equipment was used to remove Powell from the vehicle. He suffered a broken leg in the crash, according to the report.
Police said they found in the car nearly 10 grams of heroin, about 17 grams of marijuana and $2,700 in cash.
