Blount Co. man stunned multiple times during burglary, vandalism arrest

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Maryville man was reportedly shot at least three time with a taser when he apparently resisted arrest after a woman reported that he had kicked down her door Saturday, according the the Maryville Daily-Times.

The police report say that the woman told police she had been arguing with Gregory Edwin Love, 47, according to the paper. She said she asked Love to leave, and as he was walking down the sidewalk, he turned and started running back toward the door before allegedly kicking it in, according the Daily-Times.

The paper says when police arrived, they tried to get Love out of the house, but he reportedly put an elderly woman between himself and police.

Officers then grabbed him by the arm, he started to fight, according to the police report. That's when an officer took aim at Love with a taser, according to the Daily-Times.

The paper says officer reported that Love seemed unaffected by the first two stuns.

Love has been charged with aggravated burglary and vandalism.
