MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) – A Wesleyan University football player is facing a list of charges after police say he slammed his car into a another car and fought with police early Sunday morning.

Police say Khadar refused to get out of the car or answer the officer’s demands. Police say he got out of the car and walked toward the officers with his fist clenched, screaming for the officers to shoot him.
Police tasered Khadar and were finally able to handcuff him. He later told officers he wanted to kill himself because he had been in a fight with his girlfriend.
Khadaar is charged with assaulting a police officer, interfering with police, second-degree breach of peace, second-degree assault, third-degree assault, reckless endangerment, evading responsibility, reckless driving, operating under the influence, and failure to wear a seat belt.
