LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo (KMOV.com) -- A Lincoln County man is in custody after reportedly going on a violent rampage that left two officers injured and a victim shaken.

Around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call from the first block of Prairie Hill Drive after a report of an ongoing assault.

The victim of the assault told officers his neighbor, 34-year-old Shaun White, showed up and attempted to kick his door down. The victim said White wanted to fight him but he did not know why.

When he opened the door, White reportedly grabbed the victim’s face and lunged at him with a knife. The victim was able to close the door on him and wait for officers to arrive.

While White’s neighbor was recounting events to deputies, White began screaming at them from outside the residence.

When deputies attempted to arrest him, authorities say White attacked them. After reportedly biting a deputy’s hand and kicking another deputy in the chest, he tried to flee. After a short distance, White headbutted another deputy and continued to fight.

Eventually, deputies used a Taser to subdue him. Upon searching his pockets, they found a glass pipe for smoking methamphetamine.

White was taken into custody and charged with three counts of assault on law enforcement, one count of resisting felony arrest, one count of misdemeanor assault, unlawful use of a weapon and felony possession with intent to distribute.

His $25,000 bond is cash-only.
