A father and son were arrested Wednesday night after an altercation with authorities in the town of Calamus.

While they were discussing how to approach the home the boy allegedly came out with a knife in his hand. The deputies ordered him to the ground but he reportedly did not comply so they tased him before taking him into custody. One of the officers did sustain an injury to his hand during the altercation. The boy’s father, Mark Reichwald Sr., was also taken into custody on a probation hold. The 16-year-old has been charged with felony Battery to Law Enforcement.
