Chester authorities are investigating an incident in which a man alleges that a Chester police officer used a Taser on him when he had just suffered a seizure – puncturing his lung – and later arrested him for allegedly assaulting an officer and medic.
Darren Scott, 48, of Upland, is being held at the Delaware County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail on charges including aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.
On March 12, Scott was “extremely combative” and kicked paramedic Ramona Bucolo and grabbed and pushed Officer William Casey, who used a Taser on Scott twice while in the ambulance, according to the arrest affidavit. Casey believed Scott was under the influence of narcotics, it said.
