Two Jefferson Police Officers were forced to deploy their Tasers in an altercation that took place at approximately 5:16 p.m. on Friday, July 1. The department received reports of a vehicle that was all over the road, traveling east on Highway 30 toward Jefferson. Officers performed a traffic stop in the Shopko parking lot on North Elm Street, and the male subject, 28-year-old McCellan Short Siruta of Jefferson, immediately exited the vehicle after stopping. While speaking with Siruta, the officers noted a strong odor of marijuana. They attempted a physical search, but he began to resist. During a short struggle, Siruta advised officers he was armed, and the officers were forced to deploy their Tasers to gain control. One officer received minor injuries to his arm and his body camera was damaged during the altercation. Siruta was taken into custody and charged with assault on persons in certain occupations/bodily injury, criminal mischief in the fifth degree and interference with official acts. The officers also applied for arrest warrants for operating while intoxicated-first offense, carrying weapons while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance-marijuana-first offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.
