WEST JORDAN -- A man went to the hospital Wednesday after he was injured in a standoff with police in West Jordan.

The man was originally pulled over by a Utah Highway Patrol trooper near 9000 South and 5600 West around 4:30 p.m. The two got into an altercation outside the vehicles, and the trooper deployed his Taser.

Only one of the prongs hit the man, and he was able to remove it. He then took off on foot, eventually leading officials to a church near 5300 West and 9000 South.

The man then broke through the window at the church and barricaded himself inside. When he decided to come out, he was tased again. This time he fell to ground, hitting his head.

The man was transported to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.

The Utah Highway Patrol has not yet indicated when the hit-and-run that prompted the traffic stop occurred.
