A handcuffed man, whom police shocked with a Taser as he attempted to flee Oklahoma City officers during a recent arrest, remained in jail Monday.

Jason Leon Bigger, 34, was arrested Wednesday evening on eight complaints, including possession of a firearm while committing a felony, resisting arrest and escaping custody after being charged with a felony, according to the police report.

About 6:30 p.m., police responded to Ace Cash Express, 4535 NW 23, after Bigger reportedly tried to cash a stolen check. Bigger resisted arrest and wrestled with an officer, at one point attempting to take the officer’s firearm, before being detained with the help of an employee from an adjacent business, police said.

An officer searched Bigger and found a loaded .22-caliber pistol in his front pocket. Police later identified it as stolen from a previous car burglary, according to the police report.

Bigger was handcuffed and being led to the backseat of a police car when he pulled away from officers and ran south through a parking lot about 300 yards toward NW 23. When Bigger ignored police orders to stop, he was shocked with a Taser and wrestled to the ground, police said.

Bigger was booked into Oklahoma County jail, where he was being held Monday. Bail was set at $47,000.
