A Tipton man has been arrested after an incident involving a domestic dispute and assault on a police officer.
Lake Ozark Police officers were dispatched to a call at 100 Osage Hills Road, Apt. 605, of a woman yelling for help about 6:30 p.m. Dec. 6.
Officers responded and determined that domestic dispute had occurred. The officers were unable to locate the male subject upon arrival, but did finally located the subject after learning he had jumped from a second story balcony.
After determining this was the male subject involved in the dispute, he was detained but then became combative. He was placed in the back seat of a patrol car at which time he was trying to kick out the back window of the car. As officers were attempting to control him, he kicked one officer in the chest and another in the leg on more than one occasion. Officers deployed pepper spray in an attempt to get the subject under control, but the subject continued to be combative.
The subject was offered medical attention but was also combative and uncooperative with Emergency Medical Service officials. Once at the Lake Ozark Police Department the subject continued to be combative and spit in an officer's face.
The subject was finally transported to Lake Regional for medical attention from the chemical spray and was cleared to be taken to the Miller County Jail. Once an ID was located, it was determined the subject had provided officers with a false name. He was eventually identified as Justin Cantrell, 35.
He is charged with two counts of assault and attempted assault and resisting/interfering with arrest. Bond has been set at $50,000. It was also determined that Cantrell had an active warrant out of Camden County with no bond.
Officers also located a small amount of what is believed to be marijuana and drug paraphernalia on Cantrell.
The officers did not seek medical treatment.
