A security guard helped to detain him, but officers said Farmer appeared to be reaching for the gun, despite officers telling him not to.

An officer warned Farmer he’d be tased if he kept fighting but the warrant said he did not so he was tased.

That’s when he was arrested, and faces severa charges for having a weapon as a felon, having cocaine in a school zone, evading arrest, resisting arrest, and aggravated assault.

His bond is $140,000, and he is also being held on a federal warrant.
