Colorado Springs police said they used a "less lethal" weapon to arrest a man who reportedly was standing in front of oncoming traffic and being disruptive.
Ben Gonzalez, 36, was allegedly disrupting business at the Starbucks on 2960 S. Academy Blvd. around 5 p.m. Tuesday, as witnesses told police he tried to block vehicles accessing the drive-thru and may have been armed.
Officers caught up with Gonzalez as he allegedly ran to the intersection of Hancock Expressway and South Academy Boulevard and repeatedly stood in front of cars on the road, police said.
Gonzalez ignored several commands to surrender and officers employed a "less lethal impact device," police said.
Police spokeswoman Barbara Miller said, "It's similar to a gun that shoots a rubber composite type material."
Gonzalez was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, obstruction and disorderly conduct, police said.
