Salisbury man hit with Taser during investigation

A Salisbury man was struck by a Taser on Tuesday after police said he refused to comply with a domestic assault investigation.
According to Salisbury Police, officers were dispatched to 431 Hamilton Drive in reference to an assault.
When they arrived, police said, 20-year-old Tamar Anthony McNeely opened the door but then immediately closed it and refused to cooperate with officers as they spoke to family members about the assault.
The report said McNeely was irate about the incident and “became combative during the encounter.”
He was struck once with the Taser, but quickly removed the shocking metal prongs, officers said. He was then physically restrained at the scene.
Family members did not wish to press charges, but McNeely was charged by Salisbury Police with resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer.
He was released after posting a $1,000 bond.
