    Jeffersontown Police chief defends officer who tased...

    "With this incident, though a deadly force response to the threat he was presented with to himself and to other citizens nearby was justified, Officer Cruz attempted to control the volatile situation through less lethal means," Rogers said Friday. "The loss of life in any police encounter is tragic, and we send out our sincere condolences." Officers said they were flagged down near the Home Towne Studios on Taylorsville Road on a report of a man acting erratically armed with a knife. Investigators said 32-year-old Christopher Roberts ignored commands to drop the weapon, so Cruz, a 16-year veteran police officer, used his taser.
