Elmwood man subdued with taser by deputies
ELMWOOD – Peoria County Sheriff deputies used a taser to subdue an Elmwood man on Oct. 23 after he became combative with officers.
Police responding to a domestic situation in the 300 block of N. Pleasant St. found Michael M. Overend “yelling and bleeding from his head,” according to an Elmwood police report. Overend said he had smashed his phone against his head before beating his head on the wall.
A female said she was trying to calm him down when he put his hands on her neck and hit her in the chest. She also claimed he hit her in the face.
When police attempted to arrest Overend for domestic battery, he became combative, resulting in Peoria County deputies using the taser.
