CLERMONT (KWWL) -

A Clermont man was tasered and arrested after the Fayette County Sheriff's Office says he refused to go into custody.

Deputies were called to State Street in Clermont around 9:15 p.m. Sunday for a report of a man with a knife.

They say Mark Gingerich, 54, was identified as the suspect and when they attempted to arrest him, he resisted.

Deputies then tasered Gingerich.

He was taken to the Fayette County Jail and charged with going armed with intent, interference with official acts, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
