Stepfather of Celtics’ Guard Marquis Daniels Tasered at Game

All you have to know is that when asked to leave the Amway Arena in Orlando, Willie L. Buie, 55, told security and cops “I’m not going, [expletive] you.”

Yeah, that’s a taserin’. Here’s more from the Orlando Sentinel:

The stepfather of Boston Celtics’ guard Marquis Daniels was Tased and arrested at Amway Arena during Tuesday night’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Orlando police arrested Willie L. Buie, 55, and charged him with resisting arrest with violence. A spokesman for the Celtics confirmed Buie’s relationship with Daniels but declined comment about the incident.

Police reports show at about 10:55 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a disturbance in sections 106-107, which are behind one of the baskets. They tried to escort a man, later identified at Buie, from his seat, but the man refused. It’s unclear what prompted officers to remove Buie from the arena. Police said Buie responded verbally to police, saying, “I’m not going, [expletive] you.”

When several other officers arrived to help, Buie continued his resistance. He was finally escorted out of Amway to an area near the security office, reports show. Once there, officers forced Buie to the ground and tried to handcuff him, a report shows. Buie kept his hands under his body and refused to be handcuffed, officers said. That’s when an officer pulled out his Taser, put it up against Buie’s back and shot electricity into him for five seconds, the report shows. After he was stunned, Buie put his hands behind his back and was handcuffed.
