An Ocala man was arrested in Gainesville late Friday after police said he challenged an officer, who had to use a Taser twice to subdue him.

According to a Gainesville Police report, Corey Lawayne Mosley, 37, of 2420 NE 77th Loop, and an unidentified female were backing a vehicle into a vacant lot in the 1000 block of Southeast 6th Avenue when an officer approached them.

Mosley began throwing objects onto the ground and making movements as if trying to conceal something in his pants, the report said.

The pair began leaving and the officer told Mosley to stop.

Mosley asked the officer why he should, saying that he didn’t have to stop, according to the report.

The officer grabbed Mosley’s right hand to detain him, and Mosley pulled away. The officer attempted to grab Mosley again, but he took a fighting stance and told the officer that that he would come at him, saying that the officer wouldn’t respond, the report said.

Mosley took two steps toward the officer, who shot him with a Taser. Mosley tried to remove the probes and after telling Mosley to stop, the officer cycled the Taser once more, the report said.

Mosley told police that he did not know the woman who was with him, and that he had been making arrangements with her for a ride home. He also told police that he had been trying to discard an open container of alcohol when the officer first approached.

Mosley was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest without violence. He was being held Sunday at the Alachua County jail on a $5,000 bond.
