HARRISBURG -- Investigators say a Muddy man battered a sheriff's deputy Saturday evening.

That deputy responded to a disturbance outside the Bella Padra Garden Apartments at 2475 US 45 North at approximately 6:30 p.m.

As the deputy spoke with Robert D. Starnes 50, Starnes got agitated and aggressive.

Starnes struck the deputy and knocked him to the ground. Starnes then barricaded
himself into an apartment. 

Officers from Harrisburg and Eldorado Police Departments responded to assist the deputy.

A short time later they tased Starnes and took him into custody.
