||Man charged with assaulting deputy
PITTSBORO, Miss. — The investigation continues into a disturbance Sunday night in Calhoun County.
Sheriff Greg Pollan says deputies were called to a home by the neighbor of a man they say was showing a firearm.
When a deputy arrived, he found Glen Ellison, 67, outside the home.
Pollan says the deputy approached Ellison who was extremely combative.
Ellison walked over to a truck and picked up a handgun out of the back and got into a scuffle with the deputy.
The man hit the deputy in the head with the weapon.
The deputy wrestled the gun away from Ellison, who ran inside his home, locked the door and refused to come out.
Pollan says they forced their way into the home and took him into custody.
Ellison is charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, simple assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
He is being held in the Calhoun County jail on a $100,000 bond.
