LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they had to tase a man Friday night after he was seen yelling and cursing at a kids basketball game.

According to an arrest report, the incident took place just before 10 p.m. at the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center. Police say 35-year-old Robert Inkrote was arguing with a parent about a kids basketball game. Inkrote was allegedly "yelling and cursing, which caused everyone concern."

When a police officer approached him and began escorting him out, he allegedly told the officer, "I would knock you out with one hit." Police say the officer tried to take Inkrote to the ground, and he resisted, resulting in them both falling to the ground. At that point, Inkrote stood and "squared off in a fighting stance," facing one of the game officials, according to the arrest report.

That's when, police say, the officer sidestepped behind Inkrote and tased him.

Inkrote was taken into custody without further incident. Police say he "smelled strongly of alcohol." He was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, menacing and alcohol intoxication.
