(Enid, OK) An Enid man was arrested on complaints of public intoxication, resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer after an scuffle at the EZ Pawn on Monday morning.
At 10:50 a.m. Monday, EPD officers were dispatched to EZ Pawn on S. Van Buren, in reference to a man later dentified as Zachary Tolliver. According to a police report, Tolliver was “possibly on a controlled dangerous substance”.
Tolliver told the responding officers he needed an ambulance. EPD Officer Ashley Milton attempted to call for an ambulance multiple times, but Tolliver kept changing his mind and would say he did not want one, according to the police report.
Tolliver began walking away, and EPD Officer Steven Varney walked into EZ Pawn to see if they wanted Tolliver trespassed. While inside the building, someone yelled that Tolliver was standing on a car. Varney went out the door to trespass Tolliver, according to the report.
Varney’s report said Tolliver lowered his head and came toward Varney, who forced Tolliver to the ground. Soon after, other officers were dispatched and tried to help detain Tolliver.
Sgt. Andy Morris deployed his taser, after multiple attempts to restrain Tolliver, which was successful in getting Tolliver under control.
Life EMS was called to evaluate Tolliver, who was transported to St. Mary’s.
