A Johnson City man police tried to stop reportedly fled and was then subdued with a Taser at his home.

According to a Johnson City police news release, officers tried to stop Cecil D. Carver, 41, 205 Fairridge Road, around 10:20 Monday night after someone called 911 to report a possible drunk driver.

Police found a car matching the description given by the caller near the intersection of Indian Ridge Road and Fairridge. The driver turned off his lights and evaded police, according to the release.

Police later found Carver at his home. Police said Carver resisted arrest and was subdued with a stun device before being taken into custody.

He was charged with felony evading arrest and a 10th offense of driving on a revoked license.

Carver was taken to the Washington County Detention Center, where he was being held on $12,000 bond.

He was scheduled to appear in Sessions Court Tuesday.
