Man wanted on several warrants pushes officer during arrest, police say
MUSCODA, Wis. — A man wanted on several warrants pushed a Muscoda police officer trying to arrest him Tuesday morning, according to a release.
The officer noticed 54-year-old Brian L. Degarmo around 11:50 a.m. at the Muscoda Post Office, police said. The officer knew Degarmo had two arrest warrants out of Grant County, and that Degarmo had also said that if a cop showed up as his house, he planned on killing the cop.
The officer approached Degarmo and informed him of the warrants, according to the release.
Degarmo told the officer he did not have the money to pay them, officials said. When the officer tried to arrest Degarmo, he pulled away and pushed the officer.
The officer was able to deploy his Taser, according to the release. Degarmo suffered injuries to his face after falling to the ground, but was eventually medically cleared and taken to the Grant County Jail.
He was booked on warrants and tentative charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
