Two Deputies Tased in mental health incident

Video Released Of Taser Incident Involving Livingston County Jail Inmate

Video has been released that shows a Livingston County Jail inmate wrestling during a confrontation with deputies, including two who were accidentally hit with a Taser while trying to restrain him. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department released video of the Tuesday morning scuffle that involved as many as eight deputies and 29-year-old David Wayne New of Brighton. New was brought in to the jail the night before but got into a confrontation with deputies after he was able to exit his cell and asked to make a phone call. When he refused to return to his cell, four deputies approached, with one forcibly pushing him back into the cell. When he began yelling at deputies about hearing voices in his head, they removed him to a single person cell. Things got physical once deputies tried to restrain New, who resisted the deputies efforts to restrain him. In the process of the scuffle, Tasers were deployed and two deputies were accidentally shocked before New was restrained. The deputies suffered just minor injuries. New is charged with two counts of felonious assault stemming from the incident in Green Oak Township that led to his arrest. A probable cause hearing is scheduled April 28th in that case. Meanwhile, the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office has since authorized a four count complaint against New on charges of assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer. (JM/JK)
