Suspect Tasered by Lowell Police After Domestic Violence Call

On Friday evening, the Lowell Police Department arrived to the 200 block of Maple for a Domestic Violence Call. John Lee Crider, 25, was arrested for Felony Domestic Violence, Interfering with a telecommunications device, and Resisting and Obstructing Police.

Lowell Officers received a third party call from a child inside the residence about the domestic violence. Upon arrival, Crider had fled the scene. The responding officers were able to track Crider through the snow. When they located where Crider wsa hiding a few blocks away, he was ordered out from behind a vehicle.

Crider then fled from the officers where he was subsequently tackled. Crider resisted officers' commands and fought with officers. When Crider continued to resist arrest, the Taser device was deployed. Alcohol appears to be a contributing factor in this incident. Crider was lodged at the Kent County Jail and has been arraigned on a 3 count felony warrant with a $15,000 bond.
