Washington County, Fla. - A Washington County man with a stolen tractor had a fateful encounter with a deputy, a taser and the asphalt on Douglas Ferry Road.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office released dashcam footage of a traffic stop involving 28-year-old Charles Nicholas McNeil at about noon on Friday, deputies wrote in a news release.
The deputy pulled McNeil over after watching the tractor leave the roadway several times, deputies wrote.
During the encounter, McNeil lied about his identity and then ran away from the deputy as he tried to handcuff him.
"As the deputy continued to apprehend McNeil, the suspect violently struggled with the deputy, hitting the deputy as he attempted to pick the deputy up and slam him to the ground," deputies wrote. "During the altercation, McNeil fled again, at which time the deputy deployed his taser, striking McNeil. McNeil then fell to the ground, hitting his head on the roadway, losing consciousness."
