A man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and staffers at a State College motel.

Before it was over the suspect had reportedly struggled with police and had to be repeatedly tasered before finally being sedated.

It happened outside the Autoport, 1405 South Atherton Street, during the early hours of Monday morning.

According to State College police, Anthony Williams allegedly charged at two officers while trying to avoid being arrested.

Williams was taken down and tasered before being handcuffed.

On the ground, Williams began to kick and threaten the officers.

His legs were lassoed and two more officers arrived at the scene. Williams was then tasered a second time.

The struggle continued with Williams reportedly screaming at the officers that he would "take them out" and "kill them."

Williams was tasered a third time.

An ambulance arrived and Williams was sedated. He was taken to the Mount Nittany Medical Center for evaluation.

At the hospital, police say Williams continued to struggle  and scratched an emergency medical technician on the arm. Williams was reportedly restrained in a hospital bed.

According to the criminal complaint, Williams, who was living in the motel at the time, was arguing with his girlfriend outside the motel bar. When his girlfriend went inside, motel employees tried to lock Williams out.

Williams barged through the door. Staffers tried to force him to leave. Williams then pushed two hotel workers and his girlfriend.

Williams is charged with six counts of harassment, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct.
