Stungun used on man after neighborhood disturbance

Columbus police arrested a local man after he was accused of causing a neighborhood disturbance in the 300 block of Smith Street.

Ty L. Tyndall, 36, 342 Smith St., was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, battery on a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus Police Department spokesman.

Columbus police officers were sent to the Smith Street address about a fight in progress, Harris said. When they arrived, they saw Tyndall acting in an aggressive manner, Harris said.

Tyndall refused to follow the commands of officers as they attempted to place him under arrest, Harris said. A struggle ensued and officers used a stun gun before taking Tyndall into custody, Harris said.

A witness told officers that Tyndall had punched a family member, assaulted a neighbor and threw a log at a vehicle, shattering the windshield, Harris said.

Tyndall was released from the Bartholomew County Jail after posting $16,000 bond, jail officials said.
