Taser used on drunk man in Westward Ho!
A TASER had to be used on a drunk man who ignored three police warnings to return home.
Saul Williams, 25, of The Mount in Appledore, was stopped by police in Westward Ho! along with a number of others who were also drunk.
Williams was the main trouble-maker and was so intoxicated he could hardly stand.
He eventually walked away but swore and shouted at officers who warned he would be arrested.

Police waited around for five minutes before Williams staggered back down the road and protested about being asked to leave.
He was arrested and driven to his home address where police intended to watch him walk in and then leave.
But as Williams got to his front door he started kicking it and shouting abuse such as: "I have lost my keys, this is your fault."
Officers tried to calm him down but failed so he was arrested and put in a police car to be driven into custody.
On the way he became more and more agitated so police officers warned him they would use a Taser if he continued.
But Williams did not calm down and so the Taser was used to which Williams said: "I give up, I give up."
He pleaded guilty to the offence, saying: "I literally got too drunk and don't remember any of the night at whatsoever. I don't even remember getting arrested.
Williams, who was unrepresented, was ordered to pay a fine of £120 along with £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
