MANATEE -- Deputies had to chase a battery suspect early Thursday, ending in a deputy shooting the suspect at full sprint with a stun gun, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office

Deputies were dispatched to the 1600 block of 60th Avenue at 1:03 a.m. Thursday to locate Cory Brinson Jr., a battery suspect from an earlier call, according to a report. Deputies strategically parked two patrol vehicles to the north and south of the suspect before arresting him.

Brinson ran southbound and officers chased him, one shooting Brinson with a stun gun in the left side of his back when he was at a full sprint. Brinson immediately stiffened, but the front passenger door of one of the patrol vehicles broke his fall, according to police. Brinson was not injured, but the patrol car was dented, according to the sheriff's office.

After searching Brinson, deputies found he had marijuana with him, according to the report.

Brinson faces charges of battery, possession of marijuana and resisting arrest. He was being held on bonds totaling $1,500, according to the Manatee County jail website.
