Spike strips were used to stop the truck just after 3 a.m., but Boyer refused to get out despite orders from police. That’s when troopers broke the truck’s windows to enter the cab and used a Taser on Boyer.

The glass from the windows cut Boyer’s feet, police said. He was taken to Monongahela Valley Hospital, where he was treated and a blood sample was taken.

According to police, indications were that Boyer was under the influence of Xanax.

Boyer is facing charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, fleeing or attempting to elude, driving under the influence, criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and multiple summary traffic violations.
