WAYNESVILLE, Mo. - A 20-year-old man who fought law enforcement when they arrived at his Dixon home June 8 faces a felony charge of resisting and interfering with an arrest.
Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King says officers had to use an electric stun gun on Devon Cardin, who appeared to be high on a mind-altering drug such as bath salts.
The officers went to Cardin’s home at 17430 Cliff Road about 7:30 a.m. June 8 because he had a warrant for failure to appear in court on a charge of receiving stolen property. This was the second time officers tried to arrest him; the first time, he fled into the woods behind his home. The team included two sheriff’s deputies and two state troopers. King says the fight with Cardin caused a minor wound on the arm of one trooper.
Cardin remains in the Pulaski County Jail on $50,000 bond.
