Police used a stun gun on a high school band director and arrested him after he allegedly refused to tell his band to quit playing as police cleared spectators from a football game at a Birmingham, Alabama, high school last week.

Johnny Mims, 39, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, harassment of a sports official, and resisting arrest, per public arrest records and a press release from the Birmingham Police Department.

A department spokesman said any time force comes into play while officers conduct an arrest, an investigation is opened. Additionally, records show Mims posted bail and was released from police custody the same night of his arrest.
