An Adair County man faces multiple charges after Adair County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a disturbance on Monday.

On June 6, K-9 Deputy Chandler Staten and Deputy Kenny Perkins responded to multiple 911 calls on Vester Road around 5 a.m. involving 38-year-old Jonathon Bryant.

Deputies located Bryant traveling on Vester Road as he was leaving a residence where a physical altercation had taken place and was nearly struck head on by the Toyota truck he was operating. 

Bryant left the roadway and struck a brick entrance to a private drive. Bryant continued to disobey commands to exit the vehicle and continued to try and get the vehicle unstuck when Deputy Staten deployed a taser.

Bryant was taken into custody and lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail on charges of:

• reckless driving

• operating a motor vehicle under influence

• operating on suspended license

• assault 2nd degree

• resisting arrest

• wanton endangerment

• criminal mischief

The sheriff’s office is continuing its investigation.
