ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KSDK) – A 23-year-old St. James man was sentenced Monday for attacking a police officer in a drug-fueled frenzy in an April 2012 incident, the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney's Office said.
According to court documents, Scott Davis was convicted by a local jury September 14 on a variety of charges, including: first-degree assault, armed criminal action, and first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer.
The incident took place just after 2 a.m. on April 18, 2012 in the 7900 block of Oakbark Court. An O'Fallon police officer responded to a report of an "out of control" naked man, after that man's father called police and said his son and two others had been using LSD.
When the officer arrived at the scene, he found the suspect, identified as Scott Davis, standing in the middle of the street naked. Davis told the officer he was "Lucifer" and attacked, knocking the officer to the ground and punching him in the head and face.
The officer managed to get to his feet, but Davis choked him and grabbed at his holstered pistol.
Scott Davis attempted to bite the officer's ear but bit him in the face instead. He also grabbed the handle of the officer's Taser and struck him with it. The officer wrestled the Taser away and used it on Davis to no avail.
At some point during the struggle, the officer shot Davis in the leg and arm and was finally able to subdue him.
Prior to the officer's arrival, prosecutors said Davis assaulted a woman with a medieval-style club, causing severe bleeding and leaving her with a broken jaw.
Scott Davis was sentenced to 25 years in state prison.
