ROCHESTER, Minn. – Sheriff’s deputies say they shot him with a taser after he stole a car. Now he won’t be spending any more time behind bars.

Cody James Krismer, 26 of Zumbro Falls, was arrested in September 2017 after Olmsted County deputies found him hiding in a tree line along Highway 63 NE. Authorities say Krismer stole a car a few days before his arrest and he had to be shocked with the taser to get him under control.

Krismer pleaded guilty to obstructing the legal process and has now been sentenced to 135 days in jail, but given credit for 135 days already served. Krismer will also be on probation for five years after pleading guilty to 5th degree drug possession in a separate case.
