A Grover Beach man was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence and other charges after police used a Taser and then tackled the suspect to stop him from fleeing on Saturday afternoon.
Grover Beach police responded to a call of domestic violence in the 1000 block of Pacific Boulevard at about 2:18 p.m., according to a news release.
They found the suspect, Nicolas Joseph Lopez, 36, had left on foot after allegedly injuring a woman by choking and punching her numerous times, and also vandalizing the home and a vehicle.
Police found Lopez hiding in bushes near the Grover Beach Train Depot and Highway 1, where he resisted multiple orders to surrender, the release said. Officers first used a Taser without success and then one officer tackled Lopez in the Highway 1 roadway, in order to take him into custody.
