THIS IS THE POLICE VERSION TO THE PAPERS-OTHER VERSION COMING IN NEXT

HOWARD police say they tasered a man who assaulted police in a shock-weapon stand-off involving a woman armed with a cattle prod at Torbanlea.

Police said a routine task “turned to custard” when they attended to speak to the occupants of a house who had allegedly moved back in since it was repossessed in October.

Sergeant Martin Slack said two police officers had attended to make inquiries about 9.15am on Tuesday, but when the situation escalated to threats and violence, a stand-off developed and a Howard police officer used his taser on the 34-year-old man.

The Torbanlea man and his 31-year-old female partner were arrested.

He was charged with assault on police, trespassing and obstructing police.

The woman was charged with serious assault on a police officer, trespassing and obstructing police.

Both have been given notice to appear at Maryborough Magistrates Court on November 26.

“No one was injured in the incident,” a spokesman for the Howard police said.

Sgt Slack said the taser was used to create an opportunity for officers to restrain the person.

“It stops the person from being able to lash out,” he said.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the man was armed with the cattle prod.
