HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Authorities used a stun gun to stop an Arizona man they say was trying to breach a security checkpoint at Bradley International Airport.

Connecticut State Police said 20-year-old Deshommes Flynn, of Mesa, Arizona, was taken into custody Wednesday. They say he walked past several Transportation Security Administration officers and was nearing the full-body scanner with no intention of stopping. He was displaying no identification or boarding pass.

Officials used a stun gun on him. Flynn was taken to the hospital for medical treatment, which is department policy if a stun gun is used. He was released on a $10,000 bond and is due in court Friday.

Flynn faces charges of tampering with an airport, interfering with an officer and breach of peace.
