Police say they were forced to use their tasers after Lollie pulled away and did not comply with their orders.
St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman has since called for a full review of the incident, after video appeared on YouTube.

During his confrontation with police, Lollie had argued he was allowed to be sitting in the skyway, saying the area had no sign saying it was private.
Also, the First National Bank posted a picture on its Facebook page back in 2009. It shows seats in the skyway with the caption: “Need a quick five? Enjoy a seat on the skyway.”
