Lawton man tased after leading police on chase

Posted: Updated:
LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man is in jail after sending police on a short foot chase that ended with a taser.

Police received reports of burglaries early saturday morning at both the Bible Baptist Church and the Ross Estate Apartments on southwest Lee Boulevard.

Police observed blood at both scenes where windows had been broken into. That's when they approached Galen Major in the Ross Estates parking lot, who had cuts to his hands, back and shoulders. But when police started questioning Major, he ran. That's when police tased him in a ditch 17 feet away.

Officers were able to arrest him. He now sits in the Lawton City Jail with charges of  burglary and resisting a police officer.
