REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man was arrested Wednesday, following a scuffle with police.
Two Redmond Police officers approached a man at Sam Johnson Park to discuss his unleashed dog, and he refused to speak to them. After an unheeded warning, they proceeded to arrest 25-year-old Darian Belles for Interfering with a Peace Officer.
Belles resisted. Officers Bryan Holman and Chris Wooten tasered Belles, whom they say attempted to grab the Taser and use it on them. Belles was struck in the head twice, ending his attempt to control the Taser, and was eventually secured into custody.
Both officers were wearing body cams and the recorded footage will be sent to the Deschutes County District Attorney's office for review. Belles was charged with Interfering with a Peace officer, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct, Attempted Assault on a Public Safety Officer, Attempted Unlawful Use of a Stun Gun, and Criminal Mischief.
