Report 17-8992-05: A Clay Township officer received a request to assist the Phillipsburg Police Department with a fight occurring in front of 42 E. Main St., Phillipsburg. After arriving Phillipsburg Chief Wysong was speaking with a subject who stated that his neighbor had been driving recklessly earlier in the day and nearly caused an accident so he had confronted him about it. This caused an argument to break out with the neighbor, but no physical altercation took place. Chief Wysong issued a verbal warning to the subject to refrain from going to his neighbor’s property and not to engage in any further verbal arguments. Chief Wysong and the Clay officer then went to the neighbor’s and also issued the same verbal warning. This agitated the neighbor who began to raise his voice and shift his weight toward Chief Wysong. He then stated, “You can’t tell me not to talk.” Chief Wysong attempted to explain his warning was not intended to mean that the neighbor couldn’t talk but rather to warn him not to engage in further arguing in public. The subject then began using profanity and he requested Chief Wysong to get off his property. Because the Clay officer was familiar with the subject’s mental health issues and his aggressive behavior he drew his Taser and held it behind his leg. Chief Wysong further explained to the subject that he was there to legally investigate a fight complaint and that he had the authority to issue a warning. The subject cursed at Chief Wysong and shoved him with great force against the railing of the porch. He then swung a closed fist toward Chief Wysong’s head. Chief Wysong was able to tackle and pin the subject against his front door. The Clay officer tackled the chief and the subject driving them to the porch floor. Chief Wysong tried to remove the subject’s right arm from beneath his body while ordering him to stop resisting. The Clay officer also could not pull the subject’s left arm free so he used his Taser to drive stun the subject at the base of his neck. At that point the subject’s arms were pulled back and he was placed in handcuffs. A medic was summoned to check Chief Wysong and the subject for injuries. Solomon Paschal-Desbin, 31, of Phillipsburg, was charged with assault and taken into custody.
