An officer tasered him, but he still managed to bolt into a hotel.

"As he's tasering him, he was even fazing, the guy finally was able to rip the wires out of him. He ran into this hotel building here. I just see him go down two balconies, climb from one to another to another," said witness, Joel Bolgo.

Despite his Spiderman moves, police eventually caught up with Collins on the fifth floor. He was taken to a hospital for a check up.

Collins was wanted for violating his parole and in connection with a convenience store robbery in El Cajon two weeks ago.
