A Campbellsville man has pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer and could spend several years in prison for his crimes.
Gregory Dewayne Thompson, 28, of 102 Lowell Ave. appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Thompson pleaded guilty to resisting arrest, second-degree assault, menacing and third-degree terroristic threatening. A charge of third-degree assault was dismissed.
The prosecutor has recommended that Thompson received a seven- or eight-year sentence, though he did not state as to whether Thompson should serve the sentence in prison or be sentenced to probation.
According to a Taylor County Sheriff's report, Thompson was arrested last July after police went to serve active warrants on domestic violence charges.
When being arrested, the report states, Thompson forced himself away from Sheriff's Deputy Aaron L. Walters and Campbellsville Police Officer Norman Simpson. During the scuffle, the report states, Walters deployed his taser gun on Thompson who then fell against a wall. Thompson then allegedly ran into a laundry room and opened a gun cabinet.
As Thompson reached for a gun, Walters shoved Thompson into the cabinet. The report states Thompson again reached into the cabinet and Walters again deployed his taser gun. The report states Walters pulled Thompson from the gun cabinet and placed him in handcuffs.
After being handcuffed, the report states, Thompson complained the cuffs were too tight. Campbellsville Police Capt. Todd Little, who assisted Walters and Simpson at the scene, attempted to adjust the handcuffs. The report states Thompson then slammed his head into Little's face, breaking his nose.
Formal sentencing is set for Oct. 21.
