Danny Hickman reports that on Jan. 30, Deputy Corp. Robert Cutburth went to a residence on Sand Flat Road after the Sheriffs Office had received tips that wanted sex offender Edgar Edwards was staying at the residence.
Corporal Cutburth had gone to the reported residence and was visiting with the home owners when he observed a male subject lying under a vehicle in the driveway. Corp. Cutburth identified the subject as Edgar Edwards and commanded him to come out from under the vehicle. A struggle occurred wherein Edwards resisted arrest and Corp. Cutburth deployed his Taser on Edwards. Edwards was subdued and taken into custody and remains at the Boone County Jail until his first court appearance is scheduled.
