ADA, Okla. (AP) - An Ada man accused of using his 20-month-old daughter as a human shield to avoid being tased by a security guard is facing a felony charge of child endangerment.

Authorities say 33-year-old Wendell Jason Mann was charged last week in Pontotoc County District Court.

Police were called to the Lazer Zone Family Fun Center on December 21st after Mann's wife reported he had assaulted her.

A security guard at the facility says he also was assaulted by Mann and that when he attempted to use a Taser weapon to subdue him, Mann held up his young daughter to avoid being tased.

    This is what happens when neanderthals fornicate. You too Nathan, please don't have any more children. We will all see these children involved on the Jerry Springer show. "2 moms, 12 different dads (lol)."

    We all know the word for a female that displays this type of behavior. From one man to the next..on and on with NO End in sight! I feel sorry for those little girls that have to see all those men come and go! Why Doesn’t her family put a stop to this behavior?

    Everyone in ADA that knows Lynde knows that she is a liar and she cannot stay with one man for very long. Instead of just breaking it off with them, she cheats on them. This is a pattern that she has exercized for her entire life.I know because she did this to me and to others that I have known. Jason included. We all know the word for a female that displays this behavior. Jason is a very good man and a very loving father. He never would have done this to his child or ANYONE else for that matter. I have known Jason for my entire life. He is not violent, nor does he do anything but what is best for his children. Lynde is a pathetic liar, cheater, and practicing drug addict. How she has gotten away with these behaviors for this long without being physically hurt by someone or being locked up again is beyond me. I just dont want Jason to get into trouble for something that i know he wouldnt have done. His little girl would be much better off with him. She is worthless.

    How is the ex wife involved what so ever in this matter of the lazer zone? Once again always someone elses fault never Lyndes. Was the ex wife or the other child there when this took place? Also, do the math she didn't go to nursing school 6 years after prision. Unless she has only been a nurse for a year. The rehab school program is public knowledge for people to see where their TAX money is going. So if Jason was cheating on her why did she stay with him? Maybe Lynde should date people and get to know them before they get married. Oh did I mention she was engaged to a guy a few months ago before her divorce was final. But don't worry she didn't marry him she married some other guy in July. Man she don't waste time. Wonder if there will be another baby?

    THAT LAST COMMENT IS NOT TRUE AND THE PERSON WHO WROTE IT, KNOWS IT!! IF LYNDE DIDNT HIT THE CHILD THAN WHY IS THERE A PERMINET PROTECTIVE ORDER AGAINST LYNDE KEEPING HER A 1000 FT. FROM THE CHILD?? THE JUDGE DOSENT THROW THOSE PERMINET ORDERS ON SOMEONE FOR NO REASON! AND YES LYNDE GOT INTO DRUGS AT 17 AND STILL USES! SHE WAS TAKING PILLS FROM ONE OF THE MANY PLACES SHE WORKED INSTEAD OF DISTRIBUTING THEM CORRECTLY SHE WOULD TAKE THEM HERSELF! THIS IS WHY SHE AND JASON HAD TROUBLE BECAUSE OF HER DRUG PROBLEM AND HER UNETHICAL MANNER. ASK HER AND THE PERSON WHO WROTE THAT LAST COMMENT IF THEY WOULD TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST AND WHATCH THE EXPRESSIONS ON THEIR FACES! JASON IS BEGGING TO TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST! AND LETS HOPE THAT THE TRUTH DOES PREVAIL!

    It would be nice if Jason's ex wife Niki Elliot would keep herself out of this matter and quit posting comments. Lynde never hit a 5 year old child. SHe was protecting herself from Jason hitting her and hit at him. HE (Jason) pushed his 5 year old son in front so she would hit him instead of Jason. What a Man! Everyone should have to deal with the $#@T that he has dealt her over the last 3 years! She has had 2 black eyes where he shoved her into the wall and numerous bruises. She made a mistake at 17 and got into drugs. Yes Judge Landrith sent her to the prison in Muskogee, but only for rehab boot camp to help her get clean! As far as her nursing, she did that 6 years after drug rehab and paid tuition herself. NO HELP!! You people have no idea of the psycho minds you are dealing with! This includes Jason, his mom and ex wife of whom he slept with while married to Lynde while she was pregnant with his child!! WHAT A GREAT GUY!! The truth will prevail and justice served!
