During the assault, Deskins pulled his firearm from his hip holster.
“Stanford grabbed the firearm with his hands and attempted to remove it from officer Deskins multiple times without success," Schutte stated.
A second officer who responded was able to use a stun gun to subdue Stanford, police said. Stanford and Deskins were taken to a local hospital following the attack.
Stanford is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 27 in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court. He remains free on a $100,000 bond.
