Pierre Man On Trial For Allegedly Assaulting Law Officers


A Pierre man is on trial for allegedly using a Stanley County deputy’s stun gun against the deputy and a parole agent.

Beau Foote Sr. is accused of taking the stun gun when it became dislodged from the deputy’s belt while the deputy and parole agent were attempting to arrest Foote for a parole violation in Fort Pierre last September.

Authorities allege Foote deployed the gun, and the deputy was shocked.

Foote has pleaded not guilty to assault and resisting arrest charges.
