A 27-year-old Killeen man is facing multiple charges after he tussled with an officer after police went to his home to investigate a violent domestic disturbance.
Adrian D’Angelo Jackson was charged with assault by strangulation and resisting arrest. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Jackson on Tuesday and set his bail at $55,000.
Police were called to Jackson’s home in the 100 block of East Voelter Avenue on Sunday morning.
When an officer arrived, he heard yelling and crying coming from inside the residence and saw a woman rushing toward the home’s front door, which had been left open, according to an arrest affidavit.
The woman was bleeding from her nose and had a swollen face, the affidavit stated.
The officer then saw Jackson emerge from a bedroom and run toward the officer while waving his arms. Jackson pushed his way past the officer, ignoring police orders for him to stop. He then stopped in the front yard and tried to re-enter the home, the affidavit stated.
The officer yelled at Jackson to stop and threatened to use a Taser on him.
Jackson then told the officer to use the Taser on him multiple times. The officer attempted to calm Jackson down.
But Jackson rushed the officer again. The officer pushed Jackson against a wall of the home, and held him there with one hand on Jackson’s chest and the Taser pressed against Jackson’s leg, the affidavit stated.
Police took Jackson into custody after two more officers arrived on the scene.
Cooke also arraigned Ier Ashrad Davidson, 21, on a charge of possession of Xanex, more than 28 grams but less than 200 grams. Davidson’s bail was set at $20,000.
