Don’t throw my Taser, bro: Hannibal man arrested following scuffle
HANNIBAL, Mo. — A Hannibal man was arrested following a search and a scuffle where the suspect grabbed a Taser away from an officer.
On Saturday, Tyler Hudson, 27, was arrested following a Hannibal Police investigation into an assault which occurred on Friday around 3:00 p.m. Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Pleasant and Country Club for a report of a disturbance and assisted a victim who had sustained injuries. Hudson had left the scene and was found a few blocks away around 2800 St. Mary’s, where an officer conducted a traffic stop and made contact with Hudson in a vehicle.
According to HPD, Hudson would not comply with the officer and a struggle ensued as the officer tried to remove Hudson from the vehicle to make the arrest. Once outside the vehicle, Hudson continued to resist arrest and the officer drew a Taser.
Hudson laid on the ground, but would not fully comply with the officer by putting both hands behind his back to be handcuffed. The officer attempted to use the Taser, but Hudson was able to gain control of the weapon and broke it by throwing it across the street. Hudson reached for the officer’s duty belt and grabbed the officer’s flashlight. The officer utilized strikes to Hudson to gain control, and a short time later Hudson was taken into custody.
The officer sustained only minor injuries and did not seek medical treatment.
Hudson faces charges of Assault 1st Degree Special Victim, Domestic Assault 2nd Degree, Resisting Arrest for a Felony, Disarming a Peace Officer, and Property Damage 1st Degree.
Bond was set at $100,000 cash only and Hudson Remains in the Marion County Jail.
