Douglas County prosecutors said a Lawrence police officer had to use a Taser to subdue a 46-year-old Lawrence man alleged to have punched an officer in the face early Thursday morning.

Prosecutors filed charges of battery of a law enforcement officer, criminal threat, obstruction, all felonies, and misdemeanor criminal damage to property against David W. Clark. Police were called to Clark’s residence for a disturbance Thursday morning in the 1300 block of Maple Lane.

According to a police report, the officer listed as the battery victim was not injured. Clark appeared via video from the Douglas County Jail Thursday afternoon and judge pro-tem James George set his bond at $15,000 cash or surety.

It's never a good idea to attack a police officer.

Of course there is the exception if a zombie epidemic has happened and you are facing zombie cops. However even in that circumstance, you shouldn't try to engage a zombie if you are able to escape, keeping in mind they usually can't move very fast.
