GREAT FALLS – A Great Falls man who took a Taser from an officer during a scuffle and used it on the police officer has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Neal Walton was charged with assault on an officer. He appeared at the sentencing hearing in Cascade County District Court by video from Montana State Prison, where Walton, 34, is serving time on unrelated charges.

In June, Great Falls Police Officer Jesse Slaughter was checking on a parking complaint when he saw Walton, who was wanted for violating probation violation.

Slaughter tried to take Walton into custody, but Walton fought back. In the struggle, Walton got hold of Slaughter’s Taser and used it to shock the officer.

Backup officers arrived and helped subdue Walton.
