Tasered man taken to hospital.

A MAN was taken to hospital when he felt unwell after being tasered by police, a court was told.

Officers were called to a scuffle outside the Park Hotel, Colwyn Bay, on September 10 and as they approached a rock was thrown, cracking their windscreen, Llandudno magistrates heard.

Most of those involved ran off but Calem Humphreys, who was stripped to the waist, remained and began arguing with the officers.

He became increasingly aggressive and tried to pull away when they attempted to arrest him, so he was tasered.

Prosecutor James Neary said that on the way to St Asaph Humphreys felt unwell and was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital, where he recovered.

Humphreys, 27, of Ffordd Dawel, Colwyn Bay, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly and to obstructing PC Peter Colley. He was fined PS95 on each charge and ordered to pay costs of PS85 and a PS115 surcharge.

Chairman Rod Bowden told him: "It was an expensive night out."

Andy Hutchinson, defending, said the defendant had not been responsible for the fight which had spilled out into the street, and he was annoyed because he had been assaulted.
