Police say he was tearing down fliers warning protesters about the ban on camping in McPherson Square.
Police added that the unidentified individual was charged with disorderly conduct.
The arrest took place shortly after noon EST on Sunday.
After the incident, the man had a seizure and was refused medical treatment.
A park police spokesman said the man became “aggressive and confrontational” when officers tried to arrest him and that is why the stun gun was used.
There will surely be a lawsuit from this one.
