A man from Shell Knob is facing felony charges of resisting arrest after deputies were called to his home on a domestic assault call.

Stone County deputy Taylor Jenkins says in court documents that while he was enroute to 4770 Stallion he was advised that Gregory Gaylynn Shipman had three active warrants for his arrest.

Jenkins says when he arrived, Shipman, 33, was standing next to a vehicle and began yelling obscenities at him.  

"I then began approaching Gregory with my pistol pointed in his direction, and was giving him loud verbal commands to show my his hands."  Shipman slammed the door and ran into some nearby woods, according to the probable cause statement.

Jenkins pursued Shipman into the woods and fell down an 8 to 10 foot cliff and lost sight of the fleeing man.

As Jenkins was filling out his report, Shipman's stepfather approached his patrol car and told him Shipman had "snuck" back in the house and was sitting at the kitchen table.

When Jenkis entered the house, Shipman tried to escape out a side door and was Tasered.  

Shipman, who had active warrants out of Lawrence and Stone Counties, is being held in lieu of  $25,000 bond.
