A Somerset man was arrested on charges including fleeing police and menacing following an alleged domestic incident Monday.
According to the citation against him, Holland D. Cundiff, 36, of McKee Circle, was charged with second-degree fleeing or evading police (motor vehicle), menacing, and resisting arrest.
Earlier that day, Pulaski County Sheriff's Deputies had responded to a possible domestic complaint involving the suspect and his wife with a child being involved, according to the citation; deputies did not locate the suspect because he had left prior to their arrival. The wife allegedly stated that she believed the suspect was on drugs and the kids were scared of him.
Deputies searched for the suspect to check on the status of the juvenile; 911 dispatch advised that the suspect had been seen driving in the area of Parkers Mill Road by the wife, and could possibly be in the area of Indian Hill subdivision. According to the citation, the sheriff's deputy observed the described vehicle traveling southbound on Cherokee Trail, and turning eastbound onto Sioux Trail. The deputy activated emergency equipment lights to attempted to stop the suspect, who continued through the intersection and turned northbound onto Algonquin Trail, according to the citation.
The citation states that the suspect failed to stop so the deputy operated the siren, at which point the suspect turned into the driveway of an Algonquin Trail residence and continued up the driveway and into the yard of the residence, then exited the vehicle. According to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office, the 2-year-old juvenile was in the vehicle with Holland Cundiff.
The deputy gave orders to the suspect to get on the ground, which were not obeyed, according to the citation, as the suspect made his way to the passenger's side of the vehicle. The deputy warned the suspect that a Taser would be deployed if he didn't get on the ground, but again the suspect failed to obey and was attempting to get in the vehicle, at which point the Taser was deployed.
The citation states that once the suspect was on the ground, he said, "G*** d*** you" and "aggressively ran at" the deputy before being taken to the ground. Even while being placed in handcuffs, the suspect continued to resist and would not comply with commands to surrender his hands, and was then drive-stunned with the Taser because he continued to resist, according to the citation.
Holland Cundiff was lodged at the Pulaski County Detention Center following the arrest.
