New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes was booked for battery on a law enforcement officer, which is a felony, last week. An arrest video has surfaced that shows the 21-year-old Hayes tussling on the ground with 3 police officers who are attempting to control and cuff Jaxson. Then one of the cops presses his taser against the Pelican center's chest and shocks him...
It's important to note the video we obtained starts with Jaxson on the ground and the taser against his body. TMZ Sports did not edit the starting point of the video.
However, what happened before the video starts rolling is critical ... 'cause cops say Hayes is the one who started and escalated the physical confrontation.
Police claim when they arrived on the scene, Hayes attempted to enter the home -- despite their commands -- before he ultimately shoved an officer, injuring him.
"Body worn video captured Hayes repeatedly attempting to enter the
residence despite officers blocking his path and verbal commands for him to remain outside,'' police said in a statement.
"Officers requested a backup and they attempted to place Hayes' hands behind his back; however, Hayes broke free of the officers' grasp and pushed one of the officers into a wall.''
