Wichita Falls Police Taze Unarmed Man

Wichita Falls police told Newschannel 6 a suspect thought to be armed was tazed Thursday night. It turned out the man was not armed, but he was suspected of hurting another person.

Officials said officers responded to an "assault with a weapon" call around 9:00 p.m. Police said when they arrived a female at the scene said Romeal Jeter, 57, had cut another man in the neck with a pocket knife.

Officers said they believed Jeter had the pocket knife in his hand and repeatedly ordered him to drop the knife. When Jeter did not comply the officers tazed him. During their search of Jeter they found the object in his hand to be a cell phone, not a knife.

Jeter was still arrested and is facing charges of aggravated assault. Police said he was involved in an altercation before they arrived.
