CAPTURED — October 12, 2017

The Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force in Yakima arrested Jesse Rodarte in Yakima.  Officers say Rodarte refused to comply with all verbal commands so they deployed a Taser.  It didn’t make a connection because of all the clothing he was wearing so he was forcefully pulled off the top of a porch and put onto the ground where he was cuffed.
