A Franklin County man has been arrested after an incident last week outside a medical clinic in Marion.

Marion Police officers were dispatched to SIH Urgent Care on March 6 in response to a report of a suspicious person, identified as 41-year-old Keith Hendrix, circling the parking lot and attempting to get the female employees to come to his vehicle.

After Hendrix parked, he refused to speak to the officer and would not identify himself. He also refused to show the officer what he was hiding his right hand.

The officer tased Hendrix as he charged at him, a struggle ensued and Hendrix attempted to get the officers gun.

The officer activated the remote door opener to the squad car and released the K-9, which gained control of Hendrix and allowed the officer to arrest him.


Hendrix is charged with Resisting a Peace Officer, Resisting a Peace Officer-Injury to Peace Officer, and Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer.
