Follow Daily Journal:



Two Nineveh men were arrested after fighting with Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies and U.S. Marshals who had come to arrest one of the men.

David Cunningham, 49, was arrested on two charges of resisting law enforcement and two charges of battery on a law enforcement officer; and his son, Christopher Cunningham, 23, was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Sheriff’s deputies and U.S.

Marshals went to the Cunninghams’ house Thursday with an arrest warrant for Christopher Cunningham to revoke his probation. David Cunningham began arguing with investigators and then punched at least one of the marshals, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.

After David Cunningham was arrested, investigators found Christopher Cunningham in the house. He started to walk away from the deputies and marshals who used a Taser to restrain him. Christopher Cunningham then kicked one of the marshals to the ground, causing a serious knee injury, the report said. The marshal went to an occupational therapy center for treatment, the report said.

Both men, of 8215 S. Dyson Drive, were taken to the Johnson County jail. David Cunningham was held on $12,000 bond, and Christopher Cunningham was held without bond.
