Brown responded Saturday at about 9:30 p.m. to the call of a man walking in the middle of the road in the 4700 block of Western Avenue. The man, later identified as Hayden J. Croucher, was located. He allegedly refused to leave the roadway and began to make a move to his pocket, resulting in Brown pulling his firearm and ordering him to put his hands up, which the Croucher did. With the help of CPD Officer Joe Becker, the officers placed him handcuffs. Croucher tried to reach to his pocket, which Brown determined contained a gun. In the struggle, the man had been cut so EMS responded to treat the wound. After transporting Croucher to Fayette Regional Health System, he grabbed the nurse so Brown used his Taser to gain control. Croucher was transported to FCJ.
