LODI — Police said they used a stun gun on a 60-year-old man Wednesday after he threatened his wife with a rifle and refused to hand over a knife to officers.
Jeffrey Gillium, of 9114 Jameson Road, was arrested by Medina County Sheriff’s deputies on a charge of resisting arrest.
He was taken into custody after he was found about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday inside an unoccupied building at Bislich Farm & Greenhouse, according to Lodi Police Chief Keith Keough.
Keough said Gillium’s wife called police to report he had threatened her with a rifle, then fled on foot.
Officers recovered the rifle and reported finding Gillium under a metal grate inside a greenhouse at 8211 Greenwich Road.
Keough said Gillium refused to hand over a 4-inch blade knife and spat in an officer’s face.
“It was a pretty hairy situation,” Keough said. “A stun gun was used to help control him.”
Additional charges against Gillium are pending, the chief said.
Gillium was being held on $5,000 bond at the Medina County Jail, according to a sheriff’s office deputy.
