JASPER — A Friday night complaint about a man possibly involved in drug activity led to a chase, a stun gun deployment and an arrest.
The Jasper Police Department was called to the Circle A parking lot at 1402 Newton Street at 8:48 p.m. They had been told to look for a man wearing a blue tank top and jeans.
When officers arrived on the scene and made their presence known, the man fitting the description, Brian C. Kelly Jr., 31, 3611 Victory Drive, Jasper, fled on foot, according to police.
An officer deployed a Taser stun gun, incapacitating Kelley until he could be detained.

He posted bond early Saturday afternoon.
