Cuffed suspect taken down with Taser

-

A burglary suspect was in handcuffs when he decided to try to run away on foot.  He ended up with a smashed up face when an officer used a Taser on him and he went flying, face first, onto a South Florida street.

It happened over the weekend in the small community of Surfside outside of Miami. 

The man had been arrested to the theft of a bike in a condominium building.  Officers were taking him to the patrol car when Carlos Sierra, 26-years-old, started running.

One of the officers took off and pulled out his stun gun. 

Cruz was at a full run when he was hit with the electrical shock that send him flying for several feet before crashing to the pavement.
