Deputy prosecutor hit on head by defendant

A Grays Harbor County deputy prosecutor was hit on the head by the defendant in a murder case in Montesano.

Deputies immediately tackled Roderick Reed and subdued him with Taser shocks after the attack Monday morning on Deputy Prosecutor Gerald Fuller, according to KXRO radio.

Reed was brought back before the bench Monday afternoon and sentenced to 30 days in jail for contempt of court.

The time will be served before proceedings resume in the Tahola man’s murder case.
