New Details In Jaxson Hayes Fighting LAPD Officers Released 


On Wednesday, we reported that New Orleans Pelicans big man Jaxson Hayes was arrested in Los Angeles, following a brawl with Los Angeles Police.

During the brawl, Hayes got tasered and eventually taken into a hospital. While everything was a little indistinct two days ago – we have not heard anything other than that the Pelicans are aware of the situation, while working on additional information – a report by TMZ now sheds some light on the case. They tased him for two and a half minutes:


“Police tell us they received a call for a “domestic dispute” around 2:50 AM Wednesday morning … and when they responded to the location of the alleged incident, officers say they made contact with Hayes in the front yard.

Cops say while talking to Jaxson, the 6’11” hooper attempted to go inside. They ordered him to stop, but he didn’t listen … and then things turned physical. Police claim Hayes pushed an officer into a wall.

LAPD says the 2 officers were able to get Jaxson to the ground, but he continued to resist — and attempted to get up. Police say a taser was deployed twice during the fight — which they say lasted “approximately 2 and a half minutes” before they were able to cuff Hayes.”
