TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A man is in jail, charged with assaulting and harassing an officer with the Arlington Police Department.
Investigators tell CBS 11 News, something that suspect said during the incident also prompted police to notify the FBI.
Wahib Sadek now faces charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and assaulting a public servant.
It was around 3 p.m. Tuesday when police say an Arlington School Resource Officer was driving to the station when two people flagged him down. The residents told the officer about a possible aggravated assault by a man who was believed to be armed.
The officer found Sadek’s vehicle, and made a traffic stop near Green Oaks and Waterview Drive. It was then police say Sadek got out of his car and began walking toward the officer, in what was perceived as an aggressive manner.
Since the officer didn’t see Sadek brandishing any type of weapon he holstered his gun and took out a taser. Even though Sadek was ordered to get on the ground, in moments caught on cell phone video, the 22-year-old would not stop walking toward the officer. The officer used the taser on Sadek after the two got into a physical fight. But, with the help of two private citizens, the suspect was eventually taken into custody.
