Man with axe attacks deputy

It was an unnerving start to the week for a Brunswick County deputy. Deputy Justin Stadler responded to a break-in call on Dogwood Road in Winnabow around three o’clock Monday afternoon, to find a man standing in the road holding an axe. That man was 33-year-old Anthony Hall. Hall dropped the axe when ordered to do so, but came for Deputy Stadler, who then attempted to use his taser gun. Hall knocked the taser from Stadler's hands and attacked him. Among Hall's charges are assault on a government official inflicting serious injury and two counts of felony breaking and entering. Charles Miller of the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, said, "We were fortunate that the deputy only received minor injuries. He was treated and released from Dosher Hospital to return back to normal duty. We're glad it wasn't any worse. The situation could have escalated to be really bad Hall is being held under $50,000 bond in the Brunswick County jail.

These animals have no respect for the law! Hey Waterford & Magnolia Greens- meet your new neighbors! They just keep on breeding.

Well, you'll never make that mistake again

And don't think you're the first to make it. I did something very similar years ago, and would have likely died had backup not arrived in time. But like I said, you'll never do it again. Don't EVER holster your piece until the suspect is on his face, on the ground, with arms outstretched, or kneeling down with legs crossed, hands on his head and fingers interlocked (depending upon your department's policy) and you are ready to cuff him. You can consider the suspect reasonably safe only once they're on and double locked. Until then, he's one step from killing you.
