MINER, Mo. (AP) - An Alabama man is jailed after allegedly trying to punch a Missouri police officer.

The Southeast Missourian (http://bit.ly/1sj8ZMl ) reports that 29-year-old Channon Lowery of Millbrook, Alabama, is charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. He is held on $2,500 cash-only bond.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says the incident happened just after 3 a.m. Monday on the parking lot of a business in Miner, Missouri. Police received a call about a disturbance. Walter says a deputy arrived to find Lowery yelling and cursing.

Walter says that as the deputy tried to talk to Lowery, Lowery began advancing toward him and tried to hit the deputy with his fist. He was subdued with a stun gun. The deputy was not hurt.
