Suspected burglar, James E. Washington, was arrested today on charges of burglary and resisting a law enforcement officer without violence. Washington, 49, was as arrested as he lodged himself in a rooftop air vent unable to free himself.
Witnesses told police that Washington was seen remving copper wire from the side of a building on North Orange Blossom Trial in Orlando at 2:15 a.m. Washington was ultimately arrested for resisting an officer for refusing to obey a lawful order given by law enforcement.
In an effort to gain Washington’s cooperation, police indicate they fired a Taser at Washington stunning him. Washington was being held at the Orange County Jail on $3,600 bond.
