7/ 16 Deputies Draw Guns and Use Taser on Violent Man

A 43-year-old town of Wayne man who had to be tasered by a Washington County Sheriff’s deputy could face criminal charges after a pushing match with his neighbor. According to Lieutenant Martin Schulteiss from the Sheriff’s Department, they received a report at about 9 p.m. Friday of an argument between an allegedly intoxicated man, a 36-year-old town of Wayne woman and a 17-year-old town of Wayne teen. As a deputy pulled up to the town of Wayne home, the man’s family fled to the neighbor’s home. The man ran back into the house with the deputy in pursuit, and then he came back to the door with a knife. The man backed the deputy to the road when another deputy arrived. Both deputies had the man at gunpoint as he continued to “push the limit” and was nearly shot, according to the report. A third deputy arrived and flanked the man. Two of the deputies wound up using a Taser on him and took him into custody. He was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital for medical clearance and was placed on a mental evaluation plan. The Washington County District Attorney’s Office is requesting domestic charges as well as additional charges for his conduct with his neighbor and failing to comply with an officer.
