Man arrested for assaulting an officer

Sarah Moffitt, The Park Record

A 20-year old Basin resident was arrested by the Summit County Sheriff’s office Sunday night after he resisted arrest and attempted to grab an officer’s stun gun before police were able to taser him, according to Summit County Detective Sergeant Ron Bridge.

Bridge said Calan Ray, a Pinebrook resident, was at a party in Pinebrook that officers responded to. Ray fled the scene and when officers caught him he resisted arrest and assaulted an officer.

"Ray knee’d an officer and struck him with his elbows," Bridge said, adding that the officer was not injured. "The suspect then attempted to remove the officer’s taser from his belt. The officer was able to fight him off and tased the suspect."

Bridge said that alcohol was a contributing factor in the incident.

Ray was booked in the Summit County Jail and is being charged with five misdemeanors, including possession of a controlled substance, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. He is also facing a felony charge for disarming an officer. His bail is currently set at $10,000.
