By Calen McKinney

A Campbellsville man has been sentenced to serve 60 days in jail and five years' probation for assaulting a police officer.

Gregory Dewayne Thompson, 28, of 102 Lowell Ave. appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Tuesday, Oct. 21 for formal sentencing in a case from July 2007.

In August, Thompson pleaded guilty to resisting arrest, second-degree assault, menacing and third-degree terroristic threatening. A charge of third-degree assault was dismissed.

In addition to his jail sentence and probation, Thompson was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

According to a Taylor County Sheriff's Office report, Thompson was arrested in July 2007 after police went to serve active warrants for his arrest 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. Walters was finally able to pull 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.

At that time, Dudley was granted a three-year pretrial diversion and sentenced to two years' probation. If she failed the terms of her diversion, Dudley was to be sentenced to three years in prison.

Dudley's diversion was voided in August because she had not paid court fees, failed to report to the probation and parole office and faced new charges in Bullitt and Spencer counties. Dudley was ordered to complete an in-house treatment program followed by an after-care program.
