Taser Tags Upset Suspect During Arrest

10-3-06 - Grayson County lawmen used a taser to control a man who punched a police officer and a deputy early Monday morning. It happened at the Whitesboro truck stop along Highway 82.

Deputies say 62-year-old Johnny Lee Freeman of McKinney was harassing waitresses and customers. At one point, he was pointing a rifle at people.

Whitesboro Police arrested him, but when it came time to transfer him to Grayson County deputies, officers say Freeman punched one lawman in the eye and hit a deputy in the arm and chest.

Deputies had to use a taser to calm him down. He's charged with deadly conduct, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and two counts of assault on a public servant.
