ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man who kicked two deputies who arrested him two months ago has now attacked an Orangeburg County officer trying to get him into a holding cell at the courthouse.

A police report obtained by The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (https://bit.ly/2hswrHF ) says 35-year-old Wesley Givens slammed the officer’s head into a cinderblock wall several times Wednesday as the deputy led him to the cell.

Authorities say the officer was able to shoot Givens with a stun gun to end the attack.

Two months ago, deputies say Givens kicked two officers as they led him to jail after his arrest on 14 warrants.
