According to a police report, officers observed the 43-year-old Stow man threatening to harm others with a taser he owned at 8:35 p.m.

The incident occurred after the man's daughter was told to leave a city-sponsored youth sports game, according to the report. Police reported the female was told to leave because she was seen yelling and making obscene gestures at several individuals during the game, according to the report.

Their cases have been filed with the Cuyahoga Falls Municipal Court.
