Police say they had to tase Anzuruni twice before they could handcuff him.

BOWLING GREEN, KY (WBKO) -- Police say they responded to an "out of control" student at Bowling Green High School at 10:35 a.m. Monday.

They say they ordered 18-year-old Mwanza Anzuruni to sit down several times but he refused. They say when he raised his arms and balled his fists they felt threatened and tased him.

"Our officers gave him commands and he would not adhere to those commands," said BIPED Public Information Officer Ronnie Ward. "He would not adhere to those commands, nor obey those commands. He sort of positioned himself, postured himself, that he wanted to fight with the officers so the officer tasered him."

Police say they had to tase Anzuruni twice before they could handcuff him. And when he was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail authorities say they found a knife in his pant leg.

Anzuruni is charged with disorderly conduct, menacing, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon, and promoting contraband.
