A Hermiston man was zapped with a Taser on Saturday after reportedly waving a gun at someone and then resisting arrest when officers caught up with him.
Jesse Lopez, 20, was booked into the Umatilla County jail on suspicion of pointing a firearm, menacing and resisting arrest.
Lopez reportedly was involved in the firearm incident about 9 p.m. Saturday, police said.
Hermiston police found him about 24 hours later in the 200 block of East Beech Avenue. Police said he was "verbally aggressive" and pulled away from officers who were trying to restrain him.

He was arrested with the help of Oregon State Police troopers after being zapped with a Taser.
"Unfortunately, the crimes Mr. Lopez was charged with were all misdemeanors, yet his actions clearly show he is willing to elevate to criminal incidents where he displays his intolerance for the norms of our society," Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said in a statement.
"The Hermiston Police Department has arrested Mr. Lopez eight times and charged him with 26 different things."
