When police arrived, Mullins was asleep on the bench, and next to him police found a bottle of water and two orange needle caps, police said. There also was a baggie of a white substance that tested positive for heroin, according to police.
Mullins woke up and appeared to be “nervous and agitated,” according to the police report. He ran away and was chased through the woods by police, the report said. He was ordered by police to stop several times, and when he refused, he was shot with a Taser in the back of his head.
A police dog was called, but the subject wasn’t found.
Then a resident called police and said they saw a man, matching the suspect’s description, running in their neighborhood.
A female who was in the Miami University Middletown parking lot called police and said a man matching the subject’s description told her he had a knife and he needed a ride since he was being chased by police. The suspect ran back into the woods before police arrived.
Officer Marco Caito and canine officer Aki found Mullins in the woods, and he was arrested on a fairway at the golf course. He still had the Taser dart in his head, according to the police report.
