Cellphone video shows Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies barking out commands and threatening a mask-wearing swordsman with a taser during an arrest on Tuesday.
In the video yo use the suspect, identified as Stephon Carpenter, wearing a bandana over his face and mocking the police.
Eventually, he listens and drops the sword, which turned out to be plastic but does start to move toward the middle of the intersection before finally complying peacefully.
Carpenter faces disorderly conduct charges.
