New Mexico State Basketball player Jahmar Young got into a fight with a police officer around 3:00 am Sunday morning at a Pic Quik and was arrested and charged with battery on a peace officer…a felony. But the best part about the story is he got tased!
A witness said it all began because Young was parking in a handicap spot: “He [the officer] says, “Who’s parked in a handicapped parking?”. Jahmar Young who was standing there says, “that’s me”. The officer was then like, “Well you need to move it or I’m going to write you a citation”. And Young was “like f-this f-that”.
And that’s when things got physical. According to the witness Young grabbed the officer and they started wrestling on the ground. The cop says, “I’m going to tase you, I’m going to tase you.” and finally after a short wrestling match the cop shoots Young with the taser and arrest him and teammate Jacoby Patton who was charged with resisting arrest.
FUN FACT: Young was arrested in 2008 for exposing himself to a girl in the dorms.
