A Helena jailer used a Taser on an inmate accused of punching another detention officer in the face Thursday night at the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center. 

Dustin Kotecki, 25, of Helena, is being charged with assault on a peace officer.

Kotecki allegedly refused to be placed into a holding cell and came at officers in an aggressive manner before punching one of them in the face.

In response to a deputy's questions, court documents say, Kotecki would only say "yeah."
