EPD: Combative suspect shocked after foot chase

Ennis police arrested a 38-year-old man after he allegedly fled police and resisted arrest to the point officers had to use a stun gun to detain him.
Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson, public information officer for the Ennis Police Department, said a call of a verbal fight at about 6 p.m. Sunday at a house in the 600 block of W. Gilmer Street led police to a confrontation involving the suspect, James Brasher.
“A woman at the residence described an argument but no physical fight,” Hopson said. “Brasher left the residence in a truck, and when he came back, he’d apparently been drinking.”
Arguments began with another family member and police were called, Hopson said.
At that point, Brasher allegedly ran around the corner of the house and into an alley, with police in pursuit for around 350 feet.
“At that point, he refused to comply with the officer in pursuit and was shouting obscenities,” he said.
“He kept refusing to comply, and he made an abrupt movement toward the officer with his hands.”
