A 19-year-old man is accused shooting a police officer with the patrolman's stun gun.

Investigators say Dashawn James was stopped late Sunday night near his South Side home on suspicion of a curfew violation.

Police say he became combative, wrestled a stun gun from an officer and fired it.

The officer was treated for minor injuries.

The officer not shot by the stun gun suffered a shattered knee cap during a scuffle.

James now faces charges, including aggravated battery resisting arrest and disarming an officer. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
