Police had to subdue a New Cumberland man with a stun gun after he refused to obey officers' commands Sunday night.
Mark Mealey Sr., 45, is charged with simple assault, making terroristic threats and harassment following the incident at a New Cumberland hotel, according to Fairview Township Police.
He remains in York County Prison in lieu of $30,000 bail.
Officers were dispatched to the Red Carpet Inn at 351 Lewisberry Road in Fairview Township earlier in the day on Sunday for a report of an assault.
Mealey's wife told officers that he was drinking and would hit her in the head throughout the afternoon. She was able to leave the motel after he passed out, and she called police, police said.
The woman was taken to an area hospital for her injuries, police said.
When officers went back to the motel room the Mealeys were staying in about 10:30 p.m., Mealey refused to obey officer's commands and was subdued with a stun gun, police said.
