Centralia Man Arrested After Allegedly Telling Sheriff's Deputies He Wouldn't Be Arrested

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 55-year-old Centralia man revving his truck motor at midnight has been arrested for alleged aggravated battery to a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.  

A Marion County Sheriff's Deputy responded to the home of Dennis Spenner on Cheyenne Drive after receiving a complaint from a neighbor.  Since Spenner had been warned earlier he would be arrested if he continued to disturb the neighborhood with the truck, he was told he was under arrest.  

Reports indicate Spenner told the deputy he had rights and would not be arrested.  When the deputy reached in his vehicle to try and shut it off, Spenner allegedly knocked his hand away.  The officer then drew his tazer which Spenner tried to knock away with his hand.

Spenner was tazed twice and brought out of his truck onto the ground, where he allegedly continued to resist arrest and was dry tazed two more times.  Spenner was eventually handcuffed when a second deputy arrived to assist and was taken to the Marion County Jail.
