A 26-year-old Yorba Linda man hired to work on the renovation of the Burbank police-fire building was arrested Wednesday after being Tasered and chased on foot by officers who discovered he had an outstanding warrant during a workplace security check.
Evan Miles Housley, who works for the construction contractor on site, was confronted about the warrant during a routine background check before entering a secure area of the station, Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.
Burbank officers discovered Housley had an outstanding $30,000-warrant out for his arrest for evading police in Orange County, Ryburn said.
Housley was approached by officers who attempted to handcuff him when he allegedly resisted and pulled away, Ryburn said. As he attempted to run out of the building, an officer fired his Taser gun, hitting Housley in the back.
