ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man shot with a taser after law enforcement says he stole a car is pleading guilty.

Cody James Krismer, 26 of Stockton, has entered a guilty plea to obstructing the legal progress. In exchange, charges of theft of a motor vehicle and possession of stolen property have been dismissed.

Krismer was arrested on September 26, 2017 after Olmsted County sheriff’s deputies found him hiding in a tree line along Highway 63 Northeast. Deputies were looking for Krismer because they believed he had stolen a car a few days earlier.

Deputies said they shot Krismer with a taser to get him under control so they could arrest him.

He is due to be sentenced on September 5.
