Missouri man threatens Shelbina Police with hammer prior to arrest
The Shelbina Police Department responded to an ongoing harassment involving multiple people in the Shelbina area around 3:30 Saturday afternoon.
During the investigation, officers identified the alleged suspect as Jeffery Griswold, 46, of Clarence, Missouri.
With the assistance of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department and the Clarence Police Department, officers attempted to contact Griswold at his home in Clarence.
When contacted, Griswold approached officers with a hammer, made threats and refused to comply.
Subsequently, a taser was deployed which was ineffective on Griswold.
Eventually, Griswold was taken into custody and transported to the Shelby County Jail.
A warrant was later issued by the Shelby County Prosecutors Office for two counts of Felony harassment, Felony assault on a police officer, Felony resisting arrest and Armed Criminal Action.
Griswold’s bond was set at $30,000.
