Brian Knowlden, 56, was trespassing at the listed address. He has been arrested several times at the same address and has fought with responding officers many times as well. When officers responded to the call Knowlden used a 2 x 4 as a weapon and tried to attack the officers. Officers were able to use a Taser to gain compliance.
