The second constable Tasered the man who was momentarily incapacitated before running off.

She provided first aid to her colleague before he was treated by Queensland Ambulance Service and taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition. About 3.15pm, police attended a home in Inala after a call alleging a man was armed with a shovel, attempting to steal a car and threatening the occupants of a house.

It’s alleged the man threatened officers and was taken into custody after a Taser was deployed.

The occupants of the house were uninjured.
