Police: Driver zapped with stun gun during traffic stop yanks out barbs, begins 2-state chase

Police in New Hampshire say an unruly driver zapped with a stun gun during a traffic stop yanked out the barbs and fled, prompting a two-state pursuit.

The fracas began after midnight Saturday in Salem when an officer pulled over 52-year-old Robert Zygarowski of Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. Police say he was uncooperative, and the officer shocked him.

Police say Zygarowski pulled out the barbs, jumped in his car and sped away, beginning a chase that ended when his tire blew in Massachusetts. Police say Zygarowski climbed out of his car, charged at the officer and fled in the marked cruiser.

Police say he later entered a gas station and announced he planned to shoot officers. The clerk called police, and Zygarowski was arrested.

Zygarowski is jailed awaiting a Monday arraignment.
