A Tuscaloosa County man was arrested Tuesday after fighting with a sheriff's deputy.

The deputy was at Bear Creek Mobile Home Park to arrest Vance Eugene Mey, 24, on an outstanding burglary charge.

Mey tried to run, according to court documents, before the deputy wrestled him to the ground. The deputy then deployed a Taser, which Mey grabbed and turned back toward the officer, according to the court file.

The deputy forced the Taser from his grip, according to court records, and into a ditch with standing water. Mey punched the deputy two or three times, causing a laceration to his lip, according to the deputy's account.

Mey tried to reach for his gun, he said, but was unable to take it from the holster.

Mey was charged with second-degree assault and disarming a police officer, both felonies, and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. He was also charged with violation of the Community Notification Act for sex offenders and was being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail Thursday with bond set at $51,000.
