Deputies from the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office arrested 34-year-old Michael Davis yesterday morning at Days Inn West.

When Davis allegedly refused to comply with Deputy Dustin Hildebrand’s orders — Davis was allegedly holding a female down, pulling her hair, and striking her — he was tased.

He was arrested for assaulting an officer, disorderly conduct, possession of drugs, possession of controlled substance, and trafficking.

Two local workers staying at the hotel stepped in and helped the deputy. The woman involved was treated and released at the scene. Davis is in jail on a $50,250 bond.
