Waterloo police arrested a man for weapons charges after a short chase Tuesday night.

Police arrested Juwon Japre Culpepper, 20, in the 700 block of Logan Avenue.

Police say Culpepper tried to run away from officers, so they used a Taser to take him into custody.

According to police, Culpepper was carrying a ".38 Special" revolver.

Police believe Culpepper fired several shots using that gun Monday on Logan Avenue. No injuries or damage to property was reported.

Culpepper faces charges for interference with official acts involving a firearm, a felony, and two counts of carrying weapons. He was booked into the Black Hawk County Jail.
