GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Greene County deputies arrested a man after he damaged a patrol truck with his head.

According to an incident report, deputies went to a house in the 1200-block of East Court Street on Sunday to serve papers for child support.

When they got there, Joseph Sebasty, 29, was already outside. They told him why they were there and that they had to take him to the Greene County Detention Center.

At that time, Sebasty put his hands on the driver side of the patrol truck and said, “arrest me now, just take me to jail right now.”

When a deputy approached Sebasty, he got mad and started cursing and yelling that he did not want to go to jail and that the deputies were ruining his life.

Sebasty then started beating his head against a deputy’s patrol truck. He had contact three to four times, according to the report.

The deputies placed Sebasty under arrest.

Sebasty started yelling and cursing again. He also tried to get away from a deputy.

The deputies had to physically take Sebasty to the passenger side of the vehicle while he continued to try and get away. A deputy tased him so they could get him to comply.

Sebasty was taken to the Greene County Detention Center to await his court date. He is charged with a felony for criminal mischief and misdemeanors for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

    In a national survey, Kars 4 Kids revealed Arkansas drivers rank 48th in the country when it comes to having courteous drivers.  I have to say, I'm not surprised.
