A Cornish man was subdued with a Taser after he became violent during a domestic disturbance early Tuesday morning at a home on Old Pike Road, according to the York County sheriff.

Sheriff William L. King Jr. said Heath Hebert, 23, was arrested and charged with three counts of domestic violence assault and refusal to sign a police summons.

King said Deputy Travis Belleard was called to the Cornish home around 12:30 a.m. Hebert lives there with his girlfriend and her two sons, ages 16 and 19.

“Belleard found a chaotic situation in which Heath Hebert had thrashed the residence and assaulted his live-in girlfriend and her two sons,” King said in a press release. “Belleard located Hebert in a back bedroom. When the deputy called out to Hebert, he abruptly charged at him in an aggressive manner, forcing the deputy to physically subdue him by utilizing a Taser.”

King said the police investigation determined that Hebert and the underage boys had been consuming alcoholic beverages when Hebert assaulted one of the boys. When the victim’s brother and Hebert’s girlfriend tried to intervene, he assaulted them.

All three victims suffered injuries but did not need to be hospitalized.
