Video shows Denton officers using Taser on man

A Denton police officer used a Taser on a man to keep him from interfering as they tried to subdue a woman.

It happened Wednesday at the Motel 6 on Fort Worth Drive.

Video of the incident was posted online and shared more than 10,000 times. The person who posted it called it police brutality.

But, police said 26-year-old Marcus Coleman ignored orders to stay back when officers tried to put a woman in handcuffs.

They said she was naked and holding a baby. She appeared to be in an altered state of mind and needed medical attention.

The woman was taken to the hospital and Coleman was taken to jail. He’ll be charged with interfering with public duties.

Police said there were two young children involved and both are okay.
