Police used a taser to subdue a man who was involved in a fight among a large group of people early on Saturday morning.

Police said they were dispatched around 1:50am in response to a 911 call about a fight at Caribbean Plaza on West Bay Road.

Four men at the scene continued to behave aggressively towards each other after police arrived, and a 20‑year-old man from George Town was tased by the police officers. The man was then arrested for affray.

The arrested man was taken by ambulance to hospital for a medical examination and he later discharged. He was booked into custody and then bailed, police said.

Three other men, ages 30, 21 and 18, all from Bodden Town, were also arrested in the incident. They were subsequently bailed.
