New Franklin man arrested on peace disturbance and assault charges
Diego Harmon, a 43 year old New Franklin man remains in the Cooper County Detention Center after being arrested at the 600 block of Main Street.
Boonville Police Chief Bobby Welliver said the Boonville Police Department received a call Wednesday evening from Walmart stating the suspect was harassing employees at the store. While officers were enroute, the suspect left the premises and drove north to the 600 block of Main Street where the BPD pulled him over.
The suspect was non-compliant, which required the officers to use a taser. The taser proved to be ineffective.
After a struggle, the suspect was taken into custody and transported to the CCDC. Charges have been filed against the suspect, including peace disturbance, third degree assault, second degree assault, property damage, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
Bond was set at $6,500 cash only.
