    A former Giants safety was zapped with a stun gun and arrested after allegedly leading police on a scooter chase in a small Iowa town, according to published reports.

    Tyler Sash, who played for the team in 2011 and 2012, was arrested early Sunday in Oskaloosa after officers tried to stop him for driving the scooter with no lights on, reports WHO-TV in Des Moines.

    Sash allegedly kept going after the officer tried to pull him over, eventually ditching the vehicle and running.

    Officers found the former NFL safety hiding behind a tree, but Sash allegedly refused to surrender. Officers used a stun gun to subdue the 25-year-old and took him into custody.

    Sash allegedly admitted to having six drinks within an hour but wouldn’t take a field sobriety test, according to WHO-TV. He is charged with public intoxication and interference with official acts.

    Attorney information for the man wasn't immediately available.

    Sash was drafted by the Giants in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL draft and was a member of the squad that won Super Bowl XLVI. He was cut before the start of last season.
