Toronto police have closed off the intersection of Dundas and Spadina after a pursuit that led to a suspect being tasered Wednesday night.

Police officers at the scene say they were trying to pull over a vehicle that wouldn't stop in the downtown area. When the vehicle became pinned between a bus and another vehicle officers told the man to get out of the car.

When he didn't officers at the scene apparently deployed the energized weapon.

The man was taken to hospital as a precaution.

It's unclear what, if any charges have been laid.
