Arlington Heights police responded about 8:05 PM Thursday to a report of a disturbance at Harmony Park at Campbell Street and Vail Avenue Arlington Heights, IL. Police received a report that a man was yelling and causing a disturbance.
A man was located sitting on a cement seat wall yelling about his money. He appeared angry and agitated. As the officers approached he raised his arms in a combative gesture and told them they were entering a fight circle. When asked to stand up he complied, but immediately put his hand in his front pocket.
The man was identified as Bryan Scott Fuller, but then when Fuller was checked for weapons, he spun around and struck a police officer in the head with a closed fist.
Fuller was taken to the ground as police officers attempted to place him into custody. Fuller refused to be handcuffed and was actively kicking and pulling away. During the struggle, Fuller was able to grab the the Taser and remove it from the holster of the same officer that he struck. The officer was able to hold Fuller’s hand down, but Fuller was able to discharge the Taser. The Taser darts struck the cement wall and then the officer was able to take the Taser back.
Fuller, age 25 of the 0-99 block of east Campbell Street, was transported in custody to Northwest Community Hospital for examination. He was later released from the hospital and transported to Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters for processing, where he was charged with felony Aggravated Battery to a Police Officer and felony Disarming a Police Officer.
