A New Kent County sheriff's deputy used a Taser on a burglary suspect after he allegedly pointed a gun in the direction of a deputy, authorities said,

The New Kent Sheriff's Office said the incident happened Tuesday after deputies responded at 10:50 p.m. to a call of an individual attempting to forcibly enter a home in the 7800 block of Plum Point Road.

The suspect had fled by the time deputies arrived, but a description of his vehicle was provided to deputies. The vehicle was located a short distance away.

Deputies said the suspect, 32-year-old Isaac Alim Newman, became combative, resisted arrest and displayed a firearm, pointing it in the direction of one of the deputies. A deputy used a Taser on Newman, and he was then taken into custody. He was evaluated by EMS at the scene, the Sheriff's Office said.

Newman, who lives in the 8000 block of Point Lookout Road in West Point, has been charged with burglary in the nighttime; assault and battery on a law enforcement officer; assault and battery; obstruction of justice; possession of a concealed weapon; and public intoxication.

He was being held without bail in Henrico Regional Jail East.
