Man Arrested at Sante Fe Building

A man is arrested after he attempted to shoot a probation officer with a taser gun.

The Potter County Sheriff's Office says it happened around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon on the 9th floor of the Santa Fe building in downtown Amarillo. Michael Lee Dick was on the 9th floor of the Sante Fe building reporting to his probation officer.

They tried to take Michael Lee Dick into custody after they discovered he had an active warrant for his arrest. A struggle ensued and he took the deputy's taser gun out of its holster. Dick fired the taser at a probation officer, but he was not hit.

Two deputies suffered minor injuries. Michael Dick was taken to a local hospital for non life threatening injuries. He will be booked into the Potter County Detention Center on a charge of an outstanding warrant. Other charges will be filed.
