Richmond police arrested a man for first-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot), resisting arrest, second offense first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine), marijuana possession and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia after officers had to drive stun him with a Taser in order to arrest him.
Officers first noticed Daniel Hoskins, 41, Northgate Drive, walking across the back of the Days Inn's parking lot Tuesday morning, according to a citation. They knew he was wanted on warrants for failure to appear and tried to detain him, but Hoskins kept pulling away, insisting that officers had the wrong person.
Hoskins then ripped away from officers, and officers ripped his shirt while still trying to detain him, the citation states. Hoskins fled and ignored commands to stop and get on the ground. Instead, he ran in the direction of Valero.
Hoskins ran around the dumpster container at Valero and then ran to the parking lot of Waffle House and Shell on Lexington Road, where officers had Hoskins at Taser point and told him to turn around and put his hands behind his back, the citation states.
Hoskins refused, and police placed him against the side of Shell. However, Hoskins still refused to comply with officers and tried to get away again, according to the citation. Officers then deployed a drive stun to the middle of Hoskins's back, meaning they held the Taser against Hoskins instead of using the Taser to shoot projectiles.
Hoskins was examined by Madison County EMS before he was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where photographs of his injuries were taken, the citation states. While he was at the jail, police searched his backpack and found a hypodermic syringe, a baggie with suspected marijuana and a baggie with suspected methamphetamine.
Hoskins remained in jail Tuesday afternoon, according to online jail records.
