A 20-year-old man faces a list of nine charges based on his actions March 6th.

Damian Stauffer made a court appearance in Chippewa County this week. Prosecutors say he broke the arm of a three-year-old boy, punched an Eau Claire police officer several times while he was being arrested, and wasn't slowed when he was Tasered and hit by pepper spray. A non-lethal bean bag round finally stopped him. Witnesses say the rampage last week started when Stauffer took a shower while fully clothed. He returns to court next month.
