McClendon allegedly told officers his name was “Craig” when he answered the door of his home. After the officers concluded that the man was lying, they attempted to enter the residence, the complaint said.

After initial struggle, officers were able to enter before being pushed by McClendon. He then allegedly ran from the officers and had to be Tasered before being arrested. The altercations resulted in one officer suffering lacerations on his knee as well as bruising, the complaint said.
