Police used a stun gun to subdue an unruly man outside Toad’s Place shortly after 1 a.m. this morning.

A fight broke out at approximately 1:05 a.m., and nearly a dozen police cars responded to the scene to restore order.  As an officer tried to break up the fight, he used his Taser on one man, “who instantly began to shake and then fall to the ground,” according to an eyewitness who described the melee to the News.

At least three people were arrested.  Further details were not immediately available, and representatives from the New Haven Police Department and the Yale Police Department could not immediately be reached for comment.
