Police state that the 2018 Dodge Journey the couple were riding in reeked of booze. Police officers ordered Naoimi out of the vehicle, which caused Jimmy to get out of the car and “square up” with police.
Jimmy allegedly took off his shirt and jacket was put up his hands that caused the police to think he wanted to fight.
The officer was apparently afraid for his safety and took out his taser. Jimmy settled down, complied with their commands, and was handcuffed, and arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction.
