Gee Tasered During Foot Pursuit

Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Friday June 20, 2014 at 4:40 pm a Deputy of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with no tag in the driveway of 391 SE Old County Camp Road. As the vehicle stopped, the passenger (identified as Cedrick Gee) exited the vehicle and began to walk way. The deputy had knowledge that Gee had an active warrant for arrest and gave Gee commands to stop and return to the vehicle. Gee looked at the deputy then took off running around the corner of the residence.

The Deputy pursued Gee on foot and observed him enter the back door of the residence. The deputy ran to the front door of the residence in attempt to intercept Gee however he ran back out the rear door and fled into the woods. The Deputy continued to pursue Gee on foot while ordering him to stop and get on the ground. Gee ignored the commands and continued to flee on foot until he tripped and fell to the ground.

The Deputy drew his department issued Taser X2 ECD and ordered Gee to stay on the ground and not to move. Gee attempted to get up and continue fleeing and forced the deputy to deploy the Taser X2 ECD to gain control of him. At that point Gee was taken into custody without further incident.
