According to information provided by the Brazil Police Department, specific details about the ongoing investigation are being withheld to protect the victim and the investigation.
On Sunday evening, an unidentified caller reported to 911 dispatchers at the Clay County Justice Center that a man and a woman were involved in an altercation at the location. When officers arrived, the struggle was still happening.
Apparently Jerry R. Buchholz II, 37, had battered, pushed the woman to the ground and refused to let her leave before officers arrived. Refusing to back away from the victim, Buchholz took an aggressive stance with officers.
According to the incident report, they told him to stop or he would be Tasered. When he didn't, the officers deployed a Taser.
Once in custody, the suspect continued to be verbally abusive, combative and refused to follow instructions. Officers issued another warning about Buchholz's disorderly conduct, but he continued to struggle with them and attempted to leave.
Buchholz allegedly told officers, "OK, I'm done," after he was Tasered a second time.
When questioned, the victim reported Buchholz threw her phone away when she tried to call for help.
TransCare personnel checked the injuries of both Buchholz and the victim at the scene.
Afterward, Buchholz was transported and booked into the CCJC on preliminary charges. Jail officials confirmed he later bonded out on a $5,000 cash bond (with 10 percent allowed) to wait for formal arraignment on Nov. 9.
On Monday, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office filed formal charges against Buchholz, including three class A misdemeanor counts of domestic battery, resisting law enforcement, interference with the reporting of a crime and two class B misdemeanor counts of public intoxication and disorderly conduct in Clay County Circuit Court.
