COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

An incident report from the Sumter Police Department provides new details on the brutal attack on two EMS workers behind a liquor store over the weekend.

Around 4 p.m. Sunday, police say EMS responded to a report of a man not feeling well and lying on the ground behind a gas station on South Guignard Drive.

When police arrived, they found William Hutley, who refused to comply with the officers' demands to get down on the ground. At that point, according to the report, one of the officers used a stun gun on Hutley and were able to detain him. 

After detaining Hutley, the officers interviewed the two EMS workers, who said Hutley charged them shortly after they made contact with him. 

One EMS worker was punched several times and suffered a broken nose while the other was thrown to the ground. The fracas between the three eventually ended when one of the EMS workers struck Hutley in the head with his radio and they were able to get away. 

Both workers were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Both are expected to be okay.

Hutley, meanwhile, is charged assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature along with public disorderly conduct.
