A Winder man was tasered and arrested after attacking a Winder Police officer. The officer had been dispatched to a South Myrtle Street residence in response to a report of harassment.

The resident of the home said two of her neighbors had been harassing her and accusing her of selling drugs. The woman said she suspects the harassment is related to the fact that her current boyfriend is black as was her previous husband.

The woman said one of her neighbors, Timothy Lloyd Hayes, 50, of 229 South Myrtle Street in Winder, has stood in front of her house on several occasions yelling and accusing her of selling narcotics. The woman said the other neighbor, a female, pulled into her driveway earlier that day honking her car horn and calling the complainant a pejorative term for females.

When the officer spoke with the female neighbor, the woman admitted cursing at the complainant. The female neighbor also advised that she had been keeping track of the tag numbers on the vehicles coming and going from the complainant's residence. The female neighbor said cars come and go at all hours of the night. According to the female, when the cars pull into the driveway and honk their horn, a black male will come outside then the vehicle will leave.

The officer advised the female neighbor to stay off the complainant’s property and assured her that a report regarding the suspected drug activity would be forwarded to investigations for follow up. The officer then walked next door to speak with Hayes.

According to the report, Hayes was “highly intoxicated” and upset. Hayes informed the officer that the complainant was selling drugs and he intended to make sure that she and her boyfriend were removed from their home.

Hayes reportedly became agitated when the officer would not arrest the complainant despite Hayes’ insistence that she and her boyfriend were selling drugs. The officer attempted to explain what steps would be necessary to affect an arrest, but Hayes only became more upset.

Hayes began pacing back and forth and shouting at the officer. At one point, Hayes walked up to the officer and put his finger in the officer’s face in a “threatening manner.”

The officer repeatedly instructed Hayes to stop shouting, but Hayes refused to comply and shoved the officer aside as he made his way back inside his residence. The officer attempted to grab Hayes’ arm, but Hayes pulled free, shoved the officer in the chest and ran into the house. Before the officer could follow, Hayes slammed the door into the officer.

The officer continued to push against the door and was able to make entry into the home. At that point, Hayes began punching the officer in the head, neck and chest. The officer threw Hayes to the ground and tried to radio for help, but Hayes grabbed the officer’s leg and continued the fight.

Eventually, the officer was able to break free and draw his taser. When Hayes refused to stop and stepped towards the officer, the officer fired striking Hayes in the arm and chest. Hayes was immediately incapacitated and handcuffed.

As Hayes was being escorted to the patrol car, he demanded to know why he was being arrested instead of his “crackhead” neighbors.

Hayes was transported to the Barrow County Detention Center on charges of felony obstruction.
