CORRIGAN, TX (KTRE) - Corrigan police say they were forced to use a Taser on a man who was on drugs when he aggressively approached a school bus filled with students and then turned his efforts toward officers Tuesday afternoon.

Police Chief Darrell Gibson said Dallas Lewis, 33, of Corrigan, was seen yelling in the middle of the road on the intersection of US 287 and Market Street. He also approached a school bus, and tore off his own shirt. Witnesses said they saw the man make "attacking" gestures toward the school bus; however, Corrigan police say the children were never in any danger, and no one was hurt.

Gibson said officers tried talking to Lewis before he aggressively walked toward them, forcing them to use their Taser.

Gibson said they suspect Lewis was on some kind of drug and smelled of alcohol. Charges are pending.
