A Lincoln man who allegedly punched an 8-year-old boy and later resisted arrest was tasered by police Saturday morning.

Twenty-one-year-old Trenten Bankhead was taken into custody for child abuse, resisting arrest and failure to comply.

Police say the boy called them around 2 a.m. to report he’d been playing with a Christmas present when his mother’s boyfriend hit him in the back.

When officers located Bankhead around 3:30 a.m. he fought back so a Taser was used to subdue him.
