Police used a stun gun to subdue a man after he resisted arrest in downtown Windsor last night.

Police say the man was more than six feet tall and weighed about 250 pounds.

He appeared to be intoxicated, and had just left a bar near the corner of University and Ouellette avenues, police say.

The man was taken to headquarters. Police say he's fine.

This summer, the provincial government cleared the way for individual police services to set their own guidelines for use of stun guns.

However, Windsor Police Chief Al Frederick says it will be next year before more of his officers are equipped with stun guns.
