Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Rotonda West man after he allegedly bit one deputy.
Paul Eggers Greene, 18, 217 Rotonda Circle, was taken to a hospital and held overnight. He was charged with battery and assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and disorderly intoxication.
CCSO deputies responded to a call at 4:23 a.m. of a man in the area of Caddy and Oakland Hills roads wearing shorts and socks. Deputies say they found Greene jumping up and down, screaming, yelling, and waving his arms. Deputies said Greene was yelling he was Jesus and everyone was coming to get him.

As a deputy approached, Greene ran at him flailing his arms. He was told to stop and he did, then staring with a blank stare. Greene then rushed at the deputy again and was Tasered. He fell to the ground and began flailing his arms and legs attempting to strike the deputy. He bit a deputy on the leg and refused to let go. Another deputy used his Taser and Greene released his bite. In an attempt to handcuff Greene and obtain his wallet for identification, he rolled over and kicked at deputies; a Taser was used for the third time. Greene continued his violent outbursts causing scrapes and abrasions to his knees, feet, elbows, and shoulder.
Greene was finally handcuffed and EMS transported him to Peace River Regional Medical Center. He became violent at the hospital and had to be handcuffed to the bed. Monday, Greene was released from the hospital and taken to the Charlotte County Jail where he remains on no bond. The deputy was treated for the bite wound.
