Kirksville Man Takes Multiple Tazer Hits, Keps on Fighting

There aren’t many people a Taser won’t work on, but Kirksville police seem to have found one of them over the weekend. Eric Glidewell is charged with attempted assault on a law enforcement officer as well as a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. He is being held in the Adair County jail under $25,000 cash only bond. Court paperwork indicates Glidewell was being pulled over for a burnt out license plate lamp, and became belligerent with officers, who knew he had a history of violence toward police. The fracas ended up involving three officers and multiple shots from each of their Tasers before he was subdued.
