Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently responded to complaints of a man yelling and tearing up items in a residence on Wayne Poultry Rd.

A deputy arrived and found the man bleeding profusely from deep, self-inflicted cuts on his arms and legs. The man denied having suicidal thoughts and told the deputy that he liked to cut himself.

The man refused medical attention and reportedly kept trying to grab an item in his pocket. The deputy ordered the man to stop reaching for the item and grabbed his arm when the man refused. He tried to push the deputy away and reportedly became aggressive. The deputy tased the man in the chest, but the shot was ineffective. The deputy tased the man again and it was initially effective, but the man pulled the prongs out of his body. The man was tased a third time and still wasn’t fazed by the shots.

He ran into his bedroom in an attempt to barricade himself. The deputy kept the man from closing the door and noticed numerous weapons including knives and machetes in the room. The deputy grabbed his handgun while he waited on another deputy to arrive.

The deputies rushed through the door and knocked the man down. He attempted to grab a piece of plywood to attack the deputies with, but the second deputy tased him. The fourth shot was only slightly effective and the deputies tried to handcuff the man, but he still resisted. He was tased a fifth time to no effect.

The man then reportedly started flailing his arms and legs to strike the deputies, but they were able to physically detain and handcuff him. EMS arrived and the man was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. Because of his injuries and mental state, the deputy decided to file warrants later.
