Marquis Daniels’ Dad Willie Buie Was Tasered at Magic Game
I don’t know what it is but over the past few weeks people have been going Taser crazy. First it was some kid at a Phillies game getting Tased, then it was a Tiger Woods heckler at TPC Sawgress getting the electric shock treatment. I guess the father of Celtics guard Marquis Daniels, Willie Buie, felt he had to get in the mix too. The Orlando Sentinel via Deadspin says Buie was causing a disturbance behind one of the baskets at Amway Arena during Game 2 on Tuesday night.
Officers tried to escort a man, later identified at Buie, from his seat, but the man refused. Police say Buie responded by saying, “I’m not going, (expletive) you.”
When several other officers arrived to help, Buie continued to resist them. He was finally escorted out of the arena and to an area near the security office, reports show.
Once there, officers forced Buie to the ground and tried to handcuff him, a report shows. Buie kept his hands under his body and refused to be handcuffed, officers said.
And that’s when they Tased Buie who upon being shocked finally submitted to being handcuffed. I wonder if he was so paranoid about not being arrested because of his criminal history. Willie Buie apparently has a lengthy criminal past including spending 11 years in prison for a second-degree murder charge. Maybe now he has learned the peaceful way to heckle at a game — tossing up a towel during the opposing team’s free throws.
