Johnston Man Arrested for Assault on Deputy

web posted January 23, 2014

JOHNSTON A 49-year-old Johnston man has been arrested after assaulting an Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputy that was responding to a disturbance call on the 70 block of Monument Drive Tuesday evening. Deputies were called to the home with the resident telling 911 operators Michael Stevens was at the home causing problems and had assaulted the 63-year-old resident.

When deputies arrived, Stevens was said to be on the porch with two large bags around him. When the deputy approached Steven was said to have grabbed the bags and began yelling at the deputy. As the other deputy was approaching the home to speak to the victim he heard a commotion and saw Stevens swinging his arms trying to hit the other deputy.

The deputy deployed his Tazer, which was ineffective due to the heavy jacket Stevens was wearing. The second deputy was able to take Stevens to the ground and he began fighting both deputies, an incident report states. Stevens was "dry stunned" on the leg area in order to get him into custody.

Stevens was transported to the Edgefield County Detention Center where he was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and assault and battery in the third degree. Additional charges may be pending, including felony resisting arrest.

The victim of the original assault refused to press charges.
