Manatee deputy shoots suspect with Taser

MANATEE -- A Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputy this morning shot a domestic battery suspect with a Taser after he refused to get into the back of a patrol car, according to a news release.

As deputies walked Wiley Jakkare, 33, to a patrol car, he began tensing up and repeatedly refused to get into the back of a patrol car, according to the sheriff's office.

"At one point, Jakkare placed his feet on the patrol car and thrashed his body backwards towards the deputies," the news release states.

That's when Jakkare was hit with a charge from a stun gun.
