Deputies say a man was tazed three times after he burglarized a home in Barron County.

The Barron County Sheriff’s Department says around 6:00 p.m. Tuesday they got a call from a man in Turtle Lake saying he had been robbed, and the suspect was passed out in a car.

When deputies arrived, they found 22-year-old Andrew Murtaugh in the back of a car. It says he then resisted arrest and was tazed three times by a deputy.

Murtaugh is being held in jail awaiting formal charges.
