The Associated Press
Howerton says within eight minutes, the deputies persuaded Wheatly to drop the weapon, then they shocked him with a Taser. Howerton says Wheatly stood up and fought back as deputies tackled him.
The sheriff's office says Wheatley was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.
Howerton says Wheatly faces one misdemeanor charge of "aiming or discharging a firearm."
