SALT LAKE CITY – A video posted to YouTube shows Utah officers chasing and using a stun gun on an incredibly evasive suspect, according to KSTU.

Rick Heaps posted a video that shows officers apparently using a stun gun on the suspect, Steven Carsello, several times before he gets up and attempts to run away.

Carsello then jumped into a truck and attempted to negotiate with officers. When more officers arrived, he climbed down and eventually crawled under the truck.

After about three minutes, Carsello was apprehended by police.

The incident began when Carsello started a fight with another man nearby. Carsello then allegedly removed an antenna from a parked car and chased the unnamed man around a parking lot.

Carsello faces charges for aggravated assault/criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
