A Myrtle Beach police officer used a taser on an alleged Michigan fugitive after the man tried to run from arresting officers, police said.
Deshawn Hugle, 31, is charged with resisting arrest, police said.
Authorities were called about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to a hotel at 1207 S. Ocean Blvd. in reference to a larceny there.
Once on the scene, police said Hugle was highly upset that some of his clothing, valued at $150, was missing and authorities said he contacted his attorney about the incident.

Hugle also said the key to a mo-ped he rented was missing, and police said he wanted to call a cab to take him the store where he rented it.
Police said when they gave Hugle the number to a cab company, he pulled out three different cellphones to make the call, and they became suspicious and ran his name through information systems.
Authorities said they then determined Hugle was wanted out of Michigan with full extradition on alleged drug charges.
When police went to arrest Hugle, they said he ran and police “successfully deployed” a taser on Hugle, according to the report.
Authorities said Hugle was then taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center by EMS to remove one probe and for other injuries.
Hugle’s picture was unavailable at the Myrtle Beach Jail website Thursday morning.
