San Antonio police, frustrated by their rejected attempts to assist a heavily bleeding man, decided to take matters into their own hands by pulling out a stun gun.
At around 6 p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to a Sonic restaurant at Bandera Road and Mainland about a reported stabbing.
When they arrived, they were told an injured man who had been driving a red Volkswagen Jetta was walking around the area, bleeding from a wound.
"The guy was coming down this aisle right here, full of blood. Blood was dripping all over," said witness James Osa.
Police approached the victim and tried to talk him into letting them take him to a hospital for treatment. But he reportedly would not cooperate with officers, and kept walking away from them.
Witnesses said the man was bleeding profusely from a deep wound under his left armpit, so police used a stun gun to subdue him.
They transported him to University Hospital, but they say the victim refused to give any details about his injury.
