Columbus, Ohio — The Delaware County Sheriff’s office released body-camera video of man being tased and taken into custody at the Columbus Zoo after he disobeyed directions from an officer directing traffic. Joseph Solinger, 36, of Pataskala, is facing several charges including a felony failure to comply, as well as misdemeanor charges of inducing panic, and driving under the influence. The Columbus Zoo said that there was a traffic accident on State Route 750 in front of the zoo just before 2 p.m. on April 15. Shawnee Hills Police responded to handle the incident and direct traffic.

In the video, Solinger is seen driving towards several law enforcement vehicles directing traffic along state Route 750 in front of the zoo, when he is confronted by a deputy. Solinger tells the deputy he is trying to get to his wife and kids, before driving off when the deputy asks for his driver license. Later in the video, Solinger returns to the scene but again drives off when Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers and the deputy attempt to stop him. Solinger jumped out of the vehicle and ran, which led to a pursuit involving the officer with additional assistance. When Solinger did stop, an officer deployed their stun gun on him before taking him into custody. Solinger was arraigned Monday and given a $25,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 25.

  1. He was all hugs and kisses. And loves everyone. And them cowboys hurt him, tazed… wonder what drugs blueshirt was under the influence of. I want to love everyone and everything!

  2. that guy was having some kind of psychotic break….he was very obviously not right in the head….the officers had ever right to use lethal force if they had decided it was necessary

    they did a great job and everyone went home safely

  3. As far as I'm concerned, this video featured exactly 0 people on foot that have an IQ over 70.

  4. Spoiled soyboy who thought he was arguing with Trump supporters on social media. He got a taste of reality. Usually when this happens, these snowflakes become pretty agressive when they can't get away with their ideas and they escape to their safe space. Only this time he was in a car and thought he could only skip the police and maybe just get a warning after trying to run them over and say I love you and I'm sorry. This right there is a cancer in the american society and it's spreading to the whole world. Woke leftists who think their way to win an argument is just skipping people to get where they want or obtain what they want.

  5. To any police on this thread: Why don’t police use some sort of restraint that tie ankles/legs together similar to how hand cuffs tie wrists/arms together?

    I understand they would be impractical for a suspect you need to move around. But “ankle cuffs?” seem like they would make it easier for officers struggling with suspects on the ground.

  6. Not saying the cops did anything wrong, but after cuffing him. I think it was kind of clear he was having sort of a drug or mental health crisis. He isn't making any sense and is caught in some delusion.
