The device was deployed after Ateto testified that he was upset about the council approving the Police Accountability Board without including recommendations from the Anne Arundel County Coalition for Police Accountability, police officials confirm.
They also confirm that Ateto had attended several meetings over the past few weeks.
Officers applied for Disorderly Conduct charges after they left the meeting.
