Police: Man driving drunk had stun gun
Hugh Murray, 26, of 123 Center Lane, faces charges of driving while intoxicated, criminal possession of a weapon, obstruction, operating a motor vehicle without insurance and making unsafe lane changes, police said.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
After pulling over the car, Highway Patrol officers found Murray to be intoxicated and arrested him, according to a news release.
Police also found a stun gun shaped as a cellphone in Murray's jacket pocket, the release said.
When police tried to place Murray into the rear of the police car, Murray used his "body and legs to push away from the car," according to police.
The release said several officers were required "to place the defendant into the vehicle," but no injuries were reported.
