According to the sheriff, officers tried to arrest him for not having a driver's license and for dropping what appeared to be illegal drugs.

They told him logan resisted -- kicking and hitting the officers, trying to physically run over one.

Humphreys said the officers even used a taser but that had no effect.

Eventually, they handcuffed him.

But the sheriff said even with the handcuffs on, logan tried running over an officer again.... and that it took a state narcotics agent with the others to finally subdue him... humphreys said the officers told him they had never encountered anyone with the kind of strength logan had... it's their belief at the time of the arrest he was under the influence of ecstasy or pure meth.... finally, the sheriff said both of his deputies were hurt in the encounter, adding one likely will have to undergo knee surgery.

Meanwhile, moore said that a lawsuit has not been filed yet, but a notice of claims will be sent tomorrow wednesday .

Jason and lea farese and dr. austin and angie poole.

At lee county deputies are telling people what they can do to prevent a homeless camp from showing up on an abandoned property like the camp the sheriff's department cleared out last week in the auburn area.

You may remember sheriff's deputies found approximately 25 people living on that property.... well, county supervisors passed in january what's called a property maintenance ordinance.... and the first step toward eliminating a problem like this is to come by the board of supervisors office and pick up a petition.... "get the petition signed by property owners that are adjacent to the blighted area that are over 18-years of age and are within 750 feet of it.

One they do that and get it back to us, we get it back to our hearing officer."
