Deputies taser man following family disturbance

NICE – A Tuesday night family disturbance ended in the arrest of a Kelseyville man who deputies attempted to taser several times before finally bringing him under control.


Chief Deputy James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office said 20-year-old Edward Wayne Isham was arrested after deputies responded to his mother Julie Wheadon's Flicker Circle home.


Wheadon had reported to sheriff’s dispatch that Isham had been acting strangely and had left their house with a box cutter following a disagreement with her, according to Bauman. Wheadon called the sheriff’s office becauses she was concerned Isham may harm himself or someone else.


Two deputies responded initially to the call and Isham was located a short distance from the home with some other subjects, Bauman reported. When deputies tried to detain Isham, he would not comply and he repeatedly resisted their efforts to separate him from the others.


Bauman said a deputy deployed a taser to thwart any further physical resistance but Isham broke from the conductive darts and continued to fight. Additional sheriff’s units and the Lakeport Police Department responded to assist during the struggle.


A deputy deployed a taser a second time, with Isham again breaking away from the conductive darts, according to Bauman. After a third taser deployment failed, pepper spray was deployed and then a fourth taser deployment enabled deputies to take Isham into custody.


Once Isham was in custody, deputies learned from Wheadon that he had become enraged when she turned off some loud and obscene music he was playing in the house, Bauman said.


Isham had grabbed a fireplace poker at one point but it was taken from him by his grandmother. Bauman said Isham then retrieved a box cutter from beneath a couch.


Although he did not threaten any of his family, his demeanor was aggressive enough for his mother to call 911, according to Bauman. Isham left the house after Wheadon called and apparently remained outside until deputies located him.


Bauman said Isham was subsequently booked at the Lake County Jail on misdemeanor charges of resisting and obstructing a peace officer in the performance of his duties.


Isham required no medical attention and is currently being held on a $2,500 bail, according to jail records.
