Florida police say they followed protocol when they Tasered jaywalker Zikomo Peurifoy three times after he refused to provide police officers identification for allegedly jaywalking. "The officers were polite the whole time through and gave good verbal commands," Capt. David Del Rosso, of the Casselberry Florida Police Department, told ABC News. "You hear the officer saying why he stopped him." Peurifoy got a ticket for jaywalking and was charged with resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer. Officers found a concealed gun on Peurifoy but he had a permit to carry the weapon. Noelle Price, the woman who shot the 10-minute video, was also arrested on a charge of resisting an officer without violence because she did not provide her name.
