VIDEO: Wrestler Takes Down Ohio Deputy

A Greene County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputy deployed his TASER six times to subdue a former standout wrestler, whom he found unresponsive in his vehicle.

Deputy Josh Barrett encountered Josh Schell, 21, shortly after midnight on Oct. 1. The former standout Greenon High School wrestler now faces felony assault and drunken driving charges.

The incident began at 12:17 a.m., when Deputy Barrett approached Schell's red 2001 Pontiac Sunfire parked next to a field along Wilberforce-Clifton Road between Tarbox Cemetery Road and Harbison Road.

The deputy attempted to awaken Schell and called for an ambulance. When Schell awoke, he began fighting with the deputy, throwing punches and wrestling him to the ground.

The deputy's dash-cam footage shows the deputy TASERing Schell multiple times as he walked away from the deputy.
