COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) -

A Council Bluffs man has been arrested after police say he threw a large, plastic playhouse at an officer.

Joseph Stoddard, 34, was arrest early Friday on suspicion of twice violating a no-contact order, second-degree burglary, disorderly contact, interference with official acts and three counts of assaulting an officer.

Police say Stoddard was destroying property Thursday night at the house of a 32-year-old woman he had been charged with burglarizing on Sept. 21.

Police say when officers arrived, Stoddard would not allow them inside, then threw the playhouse at an officer as he tried to escape.

The officer was not injured.

Stoddard was eventually stunned with a Taser. He remains in the Pottawattamie County Jail on $15,000 bond.
