An arrest affidavit says the driver was speeding at 119 mph at one point before finally pulling over.
“He stopped, stop the radio,” a deputy says. “Hands up! Hands up! Hands up! Step out of the car.”
He gets out of the car, and starts moving toward deputies.

A deputy then punched the man before another used his stun gun multiple times.
The suspect finally gave up after quite a long fight.
