Cops use taser on man who wouldn't leave library

Evanston police say a man who refused to leave the Evanston Public Library Monday evening became combative when confronted by officers, charged toward the library employee who'd asked him to leave and ended up being tasered by officers trying to subdue him.
Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott says the incident happened on the third floor of the downtown library about 7:55 p.m.
Parrott says the library patron, Michael R. Boyer, 41, of the 2000 block of W. Jarvis in Rogers Park, has now been charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, resisting police and aggravated assault.
