One person is in hospital after they were tased by police during a traffic stop in Brampton.

Peel police stopped the vehicle on the highway between Williams Parkway and Queen Street just before 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Police said the passenger in the vehicle and a police officer got into some sort of altercation resulting in the officer tasering the passenger.
