According to a Campbell County Sheriff's Office arrest report, deputies were called to the Bartley home on Imperial Heights Lane around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday for a disturbance call.When deputies arrived, they found Bartley, 22, with two open bottles of Olde English 24 ounce alcoholic beverages. When asked, Bartley admitted to officers he had drank four Olde English 24 ounce bottles as well as some Natural Light beers.

Bartley's probation officer Sabrina Marsee then arrived at the home and said she had received a text message and later a phone call from Bartley's father in which he stated to come get Bartley because he was crazy.

When the phone call abruptly ended, Marsee called 911.

Under the conditions of his bond, Bartley was not to consume any alcoholic beverages.

The report says Bartley began to shake and became lethargic, laying his head on a table. When a deputy placed his hand on Bartley's back to ask if he was okay, Bartley jumped off the seat, knocked his cell phone onto the ground with his hand, removed his shirt and attempted to strike two deputies with his arms and fists.

The deputies used force to place Bartley on the ground. During the process deputies say Bartley also threw a shoe that was on a table.

Deputies say after being placed on the ground, Bartley stood back up in an aggressive fight stance. A deputy pulled out his taser and ordered Bartley to the ground.

Bartley complied. The taser was not used. He was then arrested.

Deputies say while lying on the ground, Bartley began shaking again and apologized for his actions.

Campbell County EMS arrived to check Bartley out, but he refused treatment. He was then taken to the Campbell County jail.

CCSO says Bartley is charged with two counts of assault on a police officer and held for a probation violation.

The violation of probation order was signed Thursday morning. Bartley is being held without bond.

The district attorney told 6 News, "It's a shame we are in the same situation again."

She also says authorities expected Bartley to be in rehab, but instead the incident happened at his father's home.

The next court date for the June domestic charges is August 19. Court records also show Bartley failed a drug test on July 9. Marijuana was found in his system.

Bartley also admitted to drinking alcohol. Both violated the terms of his pre-hearing release.

Bartley was arrested in late June after his father called authorities, saying his son made threatening statements toward him. Bartley was released into his father's care after the June incident.
