Suspect tases Phoenix police officer

PHOENIX - A suspect is in custody after he tased an officer with another officer's Taser Friday night.

Police said they responded to a home near 52nd Street and Greenway Road for a domestic violence call. Officers said a man there was acting erratically, punching holes in a door and destroying items in the home.

When officers arrived, the suspect, identified as 26-year-old Thomas Berry, charged them and tried to take one of their firearms, according to police.

Police said Berry managed to remove an officer's Taser and discharged a cartridge into another officer's leg. 

Police were eventually able to place the suspect into custody.

Berry was booked into jail on three counts of aggravated assault on police and resisting arrest, police said.
