A man wandering a Woodside neighborhood after allegedly assaulting a relative with a shovel was Tased when confronted by sheriff's deputies Wednesday afternoon, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
The sheriff's office received reports that Milo Imrie, 23, hit a relative in the back with a shovel in the area of 150 Wildwood Way at 2:05 p.m.
Deputies responded and examined the victim, a Woodside man, and he was treated for his injuries at the scene, sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said.
The sheriff's office warned residents that the man could still be in the area with the shovel and was potentially dangerous.
He was located at about 4:20 p.m. in Woodside but when deputies tried to take him into custody, he resisted, and deputies used a Taser to subdue him, Rosenblatt said.
Imrie was transported to a hospital to be treated for his injures. No deputies were injured in the confrontation. Imrie will be booked into jail after he is released from the hospital, Rosenblatt said.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
