A South Taranaki man was subdued by a Taser after driving off from a police checkpoint near Ngaere on Saturday evening.

Hawera Sergeant Kim Severinsen said once police caught up with the man at a Hawera address he became aggressive and a Taser was used.

The man will appear in the Hawera District Court tomorrow on charges of refusing to give a blood sample, resisting arrest, failing to accompany an officer and failing to stop.

Is this the best summer ever?

Yes, without a doubt

It's great, but 2012/13 was even better

Can't quite recall the year, but there have been better

I long for the Summer of 69 (with apologies to Bryan Adams)

Whatever. I can't wait for winter
