After an incident began in the parking lot of Midwest Express early this morning, Grand Island police arrested a man who fled on foot and was tasered because of his failure to cooperate.

Police say Karlos Chavez was arrested after allegedly damaging several vehicles in the parking lot of the business, which is at 2110 E. Highway 30.

Shortly after midnight, police responded to the report of a male, wearing a black hoodie, who was attempting to get into a white pickup.
