Is there anything a hammer and a bible can’t fix? The Tahlequah Daily Press reports:
Police say a 33-year-old Tahlequah man wielding a hammer and a Bible had to be electrocuted with a taser four times Saturday when he held another man in a headlock and claimed he was “doing the Lord’s work.”
Mitchell D. Hummingbird was being held Monday at the Cherokee County Detention Center with a $35,000 bond.
According to Deputy Michael Cates, the deputy asked Hummingbird to drop the hammer, but Hummingbird refused and continued holding onto the victim by the neck.
Deputies said Hummingbird apparently felt he was trying to “save” the victim. He was also under the influence of some substance, and had to seek treatment before he could be booked into jail.
