Police at first, thought they were responding to a burglary. It turns out it was a physical altercation. Police say they asked Yaseen to drop a shovel he was carrying. He refused. When he threw it and hit one of the officers Yaseen was pepper sprayed and tazed.

Police say they're investigating the incident and the possibility of mental health issues.
