HILLSBORO, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man whose mechanical arm was seized this spring after he was accused of hitting an officer with it has had the prosthetic taken away a second time.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/29LZ7rh ) reports that 28-year-old Joshua Stockinger, of House Springs, had the arm confiscated most recently after he was accused of using the prosthetic to break glass out of a jail door in Jefferson County. He is jailed there on $150,000 cash-only bail on four felony charges that were filed last week following a road-rage arrest. No attorney is listed for him in only court records.

The prosthetic was first seized in May in St. Louis County after an officer responding to a reported car dealership disturbance was hit over the head with it.
