NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A man has been arrested at a North Charleston concert and charged with resisting arrest in an incident in which a police officer was stunned with his own Taser. Officers at a Widespread Panic concert Friday tried to arrest the man after another man said he had been assaulted. Police say a female officer ordered 19-year-old Thomas Carpenter Neal of Columbia, Georgia, to go outside, but he refused. Police say when the officer returned with a male colleague, the man punched her. The male officer then used a Taser, but the man kicked him and they wrestled. A police report says the officer used the Taser again, but during the struggle the man used the weapon on the officer. Neal is charged with two counts of assault on a police officer and one count of resisting arrest.
