A Pulaski County man was shocked with a Taser while deputies moved to arrest him on accusations he battered his ex-girlfriend, according to a police report.
Michael Nettles, 22, was ultimately arrested on charges of third-degree domestic battery and refusal to submit to arrest.
Nettles' ex-girlfriend told investigators they had been arguing for several days "because she had cheated on him and he had been flirting with her cousin" when he arrived at her home on MacArthur Drive outside North Little Rock early Saturday morning, according to a Pulaski County sheriff's office report. She indicated they had recently broken up but Nettles was continuing to text her.
The woman said Nettles shoved his way inside when she went to the door, pushed her onto the bed, choked her and punched her multiple times, the report said. He later threw items from her dresser and as he was leaving chucked a child's plastic push car at the door, according to the report.
Authorities went to Nettles' nearby residence, where Nettles shoved a deputy and ran off, the report said. After a brief chase, Nettles stopped and clenched his fist "as if he was posed to strike me," deputy Marshall Kenney wrote in the report.
Kenney then shocked Nettles with a Taser before arresting Nettles and taking him to the Pulaski County jail. He remained there Monday morning with bail not yet set.
