A Salt Lake City police officer used a Taser on a 47-year-old homeless man after he tried to flee Monday morning.
Shortly after 5 a.m., an officer on patrol in Pioneer Park found two men sleeping on the tennis courts in violation of the park's curfew hours. The park closes 30 minutes before sunset and opens again at 7 a.m.
"All parks in Salt Lake City are closed during the night so you can't go in and camp in them," said SLCPD Sgt. Robin Heiden.
