GREENWICH - Greenwich police defended their decision Tuesday to use a Taser on a high school student last week.

According to police, a school resource officer was called into the student center at the school. The officer was asked to get 18-year-old Victor Londano to the principal?s office. Authorities say Londano became unruly and started kicking a chair and cursing at the officer.

Police say the officer called for backup and when that didn?t work, the officer used a Taser gun to arrest Londano.

Londano was arrested and charged with breach of peace and interfering with a police officer. He is scheduled to appear at Stamford Superior Court Wednesday.
