Man refuses to go to jail during domestic violence investigation

CHICKASHA —

A man was subdued by force Tuesday evening after police responded to a domestic violence situation in progress. 

Jimmy Robertson refused to comply with police resulting in his tasing and several knee strikes, according to an incident report. 

Chickasha Police Officer LeAnthony Bell responded to the call in the 300 block of West Ohio Avenue. 

"When I arrived on the scene, the reporting party was in the front yard of the residence screaming 'Jimmy hit my mom,'" Bell said. "I also observed Jimmy Robertson walking from the front yard. 

Bell said he later discovered the victim was directly related to Robertson. 

The reporting party said Robertson punched her mother. 

"(She) was screaming that Robertson has been physically abusing their mother and she was tired of it," Bell said. 

The victim had open wounds on her face,  two swollen eyes and several wounds on her legs and arms, according to Bell. 

Bell went to speak with Robertson, and while trying to place him in his patrol car, Robertson disobeyed Bell's commands and told Bell "he was not going to jail," according to an incident report. 

"Robertson stood up and exited the back of my vehicle," Bell said. "I grabbed Robertson by the upper torso and attempted to place him in the back of my vehicle and he continued to resist. Lt. (G.G.) Music told Robertson if he continued to resist, that he would tase him. Robertson told Lt. Music to tase him."

Music deployed his taser on Robertson, but it had no effect. Music had to deliver knee strikes to Robertson's body to get him to comply with Bell's orders. 

While being booked into jail, Robertson attempted to bite CPD Sgt. Jeremy Alexander while he was being taken out of the patrol car Bell said. 

Robertson was booked into the Grady County Jail for domestic abuse and resisting an officer.
