BILOXI, Mississippi — Authorities say a Biloxi police officer used a Taser on a 47-year-old Florence man after he took a swing at the officer and tried to elbow him in the groin after a stop on U.S. 90.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1Zudq65) Roy Welford Neely was arrested Saturday on charges of first-offense DUI, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and simple assault on a law enforcement officer, which is a felony charge in the state.
Investigators say Neely was standing behind a silver Corvette he had been driving prior to the stop and was not in handcuffs when the arresting officer went to take him into custody on suspicion of DUI.
Neely posted a $27,000 bond Sunday morning and was released from jail.
Online jail records did not list an attorney for Neely.
