OCEAN CITY, Md.- Worcester County sheriff's deputies say they had to use a Taser to subdue a man who threw a handgun away during a police pursuit in Ocean City early Sunday morning.

Authorities said Wendell Lamont Turner, 19, of Salisbury, ran when deputies attempted to stop him and another man for failing to use a crosswalk while crossing Baltimore Avenue just after 1 a.m.

Deputies said that as they chased Turner,they observed him make a throwing motion with his hands before they caught him. Police said Turner put up a brief struggle and deputies used a Taser on him during the arrest. They said say a search of the area revealed a loaded .44-caliber Magnum revolver. According to police, Turner stated he ran because he did not want to be caught with the gun.

Turner is now awaiting trial after being charged with wear and carry a dangerous weapon concealed on his person, carry and transport a handgun upon and about their person, intentionally resist a lawful arrest, and willfully fail to obey a reasonable and lawful order of a law enforcement officer.
