Williams-Allen is a suspect in nine car burglaries, including an unmarked Ocoee Police cruiser in which a Taser, handcuffs, a camera and a Glock handgun magazine were stolen, the Lake County Sheriff's Office said.

Williams-Allen was arrested in Clermont and everything but the handcuffs were recovered, authorities said. After his arrest, Williams-Allen allegedly told authorities he accidentally discharged the stun gun and shocked himself while he was looking through the Ocoee cruiser.

Days later, he "locked the handcuffs on himself and had to call the Clermont Police Department to respond to release him," a sheriff's affidavit said.
