FORT PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Pierre man accused of using a using a Stanley County deputy’s stun gun against the deputy and a parole agent.

Jurors deliberated about 15 minutes before finding Beau Foote Sr. guilty Thursday of two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

Foote was accused of taking the stun gun when it became dislodged from the deputy’s belt while the deputy and parole agent were attempting to arrest Foote for a parole violation in Fort Pierre last September. Authorities alleged Foote deployed the gun, and the deputy was shocked.

KCCR radio reports that Foote asked to be sentenced immediately, but the judge said she wanted time to review a pre-sentence investigation. Sentencing is tentatively scheduled for July 17.
