MANATEE -- A Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputy used his stun gun to subdue a man who had threatened him with the lid to a cooler and then a metal dust pan, according to the sheriff's office.

About 1:21 a.m. Wednesday, the deputy had responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at the home of Chris Conrad, in the 2200 block of 33rd Avenue Drive East. The deputy tried to speak to Conrad, but he quickly became belligerent and aggressive towards the deputy, according to a report.

Conrad started swinging a cooler lid at the deputy, then a metal dustpan.
Fearing he was about to be struck, the deputy stepped back and fired his stun gun at Conrad, hitting him in the back and bringing him under control, according to a report.
After Conrad was secured, he spit on another deputy, according to the sheriff's office.

Conrad was being held without bond on two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.
