Dubray then reached for the knife, ignoring the officer's orders not to, and pulled a machete with an 11-inch blade from his waistband, raising it over his shoulder in a striking position. Several officers drew their guns, and Dubray dropped the machete.

According to the release, he then ran southbound on East Boulevard. Officers followed him and during the chase, Dubray tripped and fell to the ground. 

When Dubray refused to roll on his stomach, an officer shot him with a stun gun. He was then put in handcuffs and taken to the Pennington County Jail.
