A 20-year old man faces multiple charges stemming from a weekend incident in Eau Claire. Those include injuring a child, fighting with an officer and stealing and crashing a squad car.
Officers ended up pepper spraying Damian Stauffer through a broken window in the squad car after he crashed it, and then subdued him with bean bag rounds.
Police responded around midnight to a domestic disturbance. Staufer allegedly fought with an officer, who attempted to tazer him. Stauffer then stole the squad car, crashing it two blocks away.
