Robert Ware says the incident started while medics were administering first aid on a victim who was acting violently, kicking and biting medical workers. EMT workers asked police to use a taser in attempt to control the patient, but another medic originally though the victim could have a head injury and a taser would injure him further. This medic grabbed the officer about to deploy a taser, and attempted to block him. The officer then reacts by forcing the medic out of the way. The two men then parted ways without further incident.
