PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ (CBS5) -

A Prescott Valley man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting three officers until they were able to stop him with a Taser.

Sgt. Brandon Bonney with the Prescott Police Department said officers were called to a multiple-vehicle crash near Navajo and Sommer drives on Monday night.

Police said one of the drivers, Steven Gibson, 57, of Prescott Valley, began to fight with an officer during questioning. Bonney said Gibson reportedly tried to punch the arrested officer, missed, and punched another officer in the face.

Bonney said Gibson continued to fight officers until they were able to subdue him with a Taser.

Gibson told authorities he had a recent medical condition that may have caused his behavior.

Three officers were treated for injuries including possible fractured wrist, abrasions and a possible concussion.

Gibson was booked into Yavapai County Jail on three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer and one count of resisting arrest.
