TOWN OF ASHFORD - Fond du Lac County sheriff's officials are still looking for one man in connection with an incident where a deputy's stun gun was taken.

Just before 1 a.m. Saturday, sheriff's officials say they were called to Elmore Drive in the town of Ashford for a noise complaint. When he got there, a deputy saw three people behind a vehicle involved in drug activity. The deputy announced himself and the men ran away.

The deputy ran after them and tried to use a stun gun to stop one of them, a 22-year-old man. The man hit the deputy several times and tried to take the deputy's gun from its holster. Meanwhile, a 19-year-old man grabbed the deputy's stun gun and pointed it at the deputy. The two then ran away.

The 19-year-old man, who is from rural Campbellsport, was arrested on Wednesday.

Deputies are still looking for the 22-year-old, identified as Colton J. O'Brien of Eden. He is described as 6-foot, 160 pounds, with brown hair and eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Fond du Lac County Communications Center at (920) 929-3390.
