A 23 year old Winona man was jailed early Thursday after he fought with a police officer on a roof top and then had to be tased twice.
Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said it started when a police officer made a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Joshua Lisowski about 1:15 a.m. Thursday. Williams said Lisowski fled the vehicle on foot in the area of Fifth and Winona Streets.
He was located about 3:30 a.m. when an officer spotted Lisowski on the roof of a garage in the 200 block of West Fifth. When Lisowski allegedly refused to come down the officer climbed up on the roof. That's when the officer was punched.
After a first attempt to bring Lisowski down with a taser, the officer tased him a second time. The fire department had to be called to assist in getting Lisowski off the roof. He was then taken to Winona Health to be treated for hypothermia.
At the Law Enforcement Center police discovered a switchblade in Lisowski's clothing along with drug paraphernalia with a trace of a controlled substance.
Lisowski was cited with assaulting a police officer, obstruction with force, possession of a dangerous weapon, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and fleeing on foot.
