A man who was stunned and hit with a baton multiple times by Warner Robins police in a struggle to take him into custody after jumping in out and off traffic and exposing himself faces a felony obstruction charge.
Charles Allen Scarborough, 35, of Centerville, was also charged with public indecency, pedestrian under the influence of methamphetamine, disorderly conduct and pedestrian darting out in traffic, all misdemeanors, according to arrest warrants.
Scarborough is accused of performing martial arts and a sex act in a roadway and obstructing his arrest in a struggle with police in which Warner Robins officers stunned him several times with a Taser stun gun and struck him multiple times with a police baton.
He allegedly lunged at and assaulted officers by grabbing them below the belt, police said. An arrest warrant says Scarborough kicked an officer and grabbed at his groin area.
A video of part of the incident on Feagin Mill Road and Maplewood Drive was posted on Facebook by a bystander.
Methamphetamine and marijuana were detected in Scarborough's system at a hospital where he was taken for a psychological evaluation, police said. He had a minor injury to his head from falling to the ground in the struggle. Two city police officers were treated for minor injuries.
Scarborough was released from the hospital and booked into the Houston County Detention Center on Wednesday night, jail records show.
Houston County sheriff's deputies also responded to the incident.
Callers to 911 reported that a man, later identified as Scarborough, was jumping in and out traffic, kicking boxes at vehicles and exposing himself, according to a Houston County Sheriff's Office incident report.
A Warner Robins police news release said Scarborough was reportedly performing martial arts and a sex act in the roadway.
Scarborough also was screaming obscenities while darting into oncoming traffic, a warrant said.
Warrants listed a Centerville address for Scarborough. The sheriff's report also listed a Monticello address for Scarborough and indicated he was an unemployed construction worker.
Scarborough was being held without bond Thursday afternoon on a probation violation charge out of Houston County State Court. He was convicted of misdemeanor trespassing in summer 2017, records show.
Bond was set at $5,120 on the other charges, according to warrants.
