2 officers hurt in fight with suspect

20-year-old gets hit with stun gun in felony arrest

Two Fort Wayne police officers received minor injuries when a 20-year-old man fought with them as they tried to arrest him, police said Friday. 

Davion Jordan was in the 1400 block of High Street about 10:30 a.m. Friday when he fought the two officers as they used a stun gun to subdue him, police said.

Both officers were treated at the scene. Jordan was taken to a hospital for a medical check, the usual protocol after a person is subdued with a stun gun, the department said. 

Jordan was wanted on felony possession of a narcotic drug and possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license, invasion of privacy and marijuana possession. 

The arrest warrant dates to a March 12 incident when two officers with the police department's Street Crimes Unit arrested Jordan and a woman around 11:30 p.m. after they were found loitering and smoking inside the Suburban Inn in the 3300 block of Coliseum Boulevard West, court documents said. 

The woman had a protective order issued against Jordan the same day, but when the officers found them they were seated together on steps inside the back door, court documents said. 

They told officers they'd known each other since they were 15 years old. 

The officers placed Jordan in handcuffs and informed him he was under arrest for invasion of privacy and assisting a criminal because the woman had initially given a false name.

The officers searched his fanny pack and found marijuana, meth, heroin and broken white pills in small plastic bags.

The pills tested positive for methamphetamine and Fentanyl. Also found in the fanny pack were two appointment cards with Jordan's probation officer. 

The search also produced a handgun, a Beretta, Model 21A, .22 caliber with seven rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber. 

Jordan was being held at the Allen County Jail without bail. He has a court date Monday.
