Orem • When a Utah university put on a play Monday night, the most dramatic action came from an audience member.

Police say a Utah Valley University student was arrested after disrupting the performance, stealing and breaking a prop and running screaming through the audience after officers hit him with a stun gun.

The Daily Herald reports (bit.ly/PqgHiq) Robert Fletcher grabbed and broke a spear used in the play after he was asked to leave.

Records say police stunned Fletcher with a Taser. Fletcher then ran screaming into the crowd before he ended up backstage, where police arrested him.

Police say he also slammed his head on a patrol car, leaving a dent.

Fletcher was booked into jail on several charges. Court records show he was convicted of assaulting an officer.
