The sheriff’s office says Woods refused to listen to deputies and return to his cell. Woods reportedly resisted and threatened to continue to assault staff members.

Deputies deployed two Taser shots, but Woods continued to fight them, officials said in a news release on Saturday.

Eventually, Woods was handcuffed after another deputy suffered a leg injury. Both injured deputies were taken to a hospital and later cleared to return to work.

Woods was also cleared of any injuries. Details about why he refused were not released.

He was previously arrested in Fort Collins in December of 2020 for several charges including possession of contraband, felony menacing, burglary and pattern of racketeering.
