SEATTLE -- Troopers had to wrestle with and use a Taser on a pedestrian early Saturday morning on Interstate 5 near Holgate Street.

All three ended up on the ground.

One trooper used a Taser on the man but it was not effective, the State Patrol says.

Several other troopers responded, and the man was taken into custody.

One trooper was being checked out for a possible shoulder injury.
