WA:Armed Homeowner, Deputies Subdue Hostile, Destructive, Drugged up Drunk

The victim was asleep in his home shortly after 2:45 a.m. when he heard loud banging and glass breaking at the front of his house. He grabbed his gun and looked outside but didn't see anyone.
According to the charging documents, the victim went to the backdoor when he heard another window breaking and saw 18-year-old Jimmy Harding attempting to kick in the door to the detached building the victim uses as his shop.

The victim was backing toward deputies and unloading his gun when Harding reportedly stood up suddenly and charged at him. One of the deputies punched Harding in the face, and he fell onto the victim's porch.
According to the charging documents, deputies punched Harding multiple times in the ribs and used a Taser on him before they were able to get him into handcuffs and seated in the back of a patrol car.
