One jailed after allegedly threatening to shoot a man at Wichita Falls McDonald’s, assaulting officer

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A man who was reportedly threatening to shoot a man at a Wichita Falls McDonald’s was arrested after officers tased him.

When police arrived at the restaurant on Holliday for a reported disturbance on Sunday, May 26, they said they found Jerry Bynum in front, standing next to another person, and learned Bynum had a warrant in Dallas for assault.

When told repeatedly he was under arrest, officers said Bynum kept saying they were not going to touch him and got into a fighter’s stance with his fists up.

Police told the other person to step away, and when the person did, Bynum reportedly took a step toward the person, so an officer took out his taser and ordered Bynum to get on the ground. They said Bynum refused, continuing to move toward the other person, and grabbed the person’s shoulder.

The officer then fired his taser to prevent Bynum from using the bystander as a shield, but the taser had no effect. At this point, officers physically took Bynum to the ground, but he was still holding onto the bystander.

They forced Bynum to release the bystander and said Bynum then kicked an officer in the chest.

An officer then began using closed-hand strikes to Bynum’s stomach and ribs while he continued to resist until officers finally got him restrained and handcuffed.
