Sonoma County deputies tase, arrest wanted man carrying loaded gun

Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies Sunday night arrested a wanted man, finding a loaded gun in his pocket after he was stunned by a deputy’s Taser, according to a department report.

Nathan Paul Wilson, 23, was sitting in a vehicle in Rohnert Park about 8:10 p.m. when he was recognized by a passing deputy as a felon wanted on an arrest warrant. Wilson ran as the deputy approached, the report said.

The deputy yelled repeatedly for the man to stop and when he didn’t, the deputy fired a Taser barb, which shocked the man into submission. While being taken into custody the gun was found in his pocket, a deputy said in the report.

Wilson was booked into the Sonoma County Jail without bail, suspected of four felonies including being a felon with a gun.
