Police Busy In Hess Village Overnight

Hamilton Police say two people were tasered and two others pepper sprayed in separate incidents in Hess Village overnight.

Officers were called to the entertainment district just after 1:30 Tuesday morning after door security at a bar reported a man in the street waving a handgun.

Police say they encountered the suspect at George and Hess streets when he took off running.

A police spokesperson says during the pursuit the suspect threw a bottle of Gatorade and hit one of the officers in the face, then he threw a loaded 9 millimetre firearm. 

A 24-year-old Toronto man was tasered and arrested in the King and Caroline street area.

At the same time, a street brawl was underway in Hess village involving several women.

Two were tasered while another was pepper sprayed.
