Police Use Taser, K-9 Unit To Apprehend Jamestown Man

A Jamestown man is in city jail after fighting with police following a traffic stop Wednesday.

Police around 10 p.m. stopped a vehicle operated by Curtis O. Nance, 48, of Bradmar Circle, for driving on a revoked license. According to a police report, officers observed narcotics in the center console, and asked Nance to exit the vehicle.

Nance allegedly became uncooperative while standing outside the vehicle and began to fight with officers. A Taser was deployed, but did not make contact, police said.

The Jamestown man then fled on foot near Lafayette Street where he was caught and continued to fight with police. A K-9 unit arrived on scene and was deployed.

The dog was able to apprehend Nance and bring him to the ground. Police said Nance attempted to choke the dog, but was unable to do so.

Police again deployed a Taser after Nance resisted arrest. He was taken into custody and transported to WCA Hospital by Alstar Ambulance for treatment of injuries sustained by the dog and Taser.

Nance was later transported to Jamestown City Jail.

He was charged with second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree assault, tampering with physical evidence and unlawful possession of marijuana.
