Man Resists Arrest, Accused of Assaulting Wife

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A 45-year old Corpus Christi man was placed behind bars Tuesday night after he was accused of resisting arrest and physically assaulting his wife.

The call came in as a domestic violence case, but when police arrived in the 100 block of Miami Drive, it turned into an even bigger problem.

When police tried to arrest the 45-year old man, they said he put up a fight. They had to pull out their Tasers.

"The Taser was able to subdue him," said Lt. B. Hill of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "After they did, they were able to handcuff him. He was not injured. Officers weren't injured."

Police said the man requested medical attention, so after he was checked out by a doctor, he was taken straight to jail.

The man is accused of hitting his 35-year old wife, who told police he slapped her in the face 10-15 times. She was able to get away, and ran across the street to a neighbor's house to use their phone to call 911.
   
"They asked me if I had a phone and called police. That's about it," the neighbor Casey Jordan said. "I waited for them to come. She stayed with us for a little while. She was just crying a lot."

Jordan said the couple has two young children, and also said he has seen the couple fighting from time to time, but this is the first case where police have been called out.
