A Radcliff man was arrested Friday morning by Kentucky State Police after he reportedly struck his mother and then kicked a table into a trooper.

Robert Anthony Stewart, 40, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Hardin District Court on several charges, including third-degree assault of a police or probation officer.

According to an arrest citation, a woman was brought Thursday night by ambulance to Baptist Health Hardin because of injuries she suffered after being struck in the head by Stewart.

She reportedly smelled drugs being smoked in his bedroom and confronted Stewart. When she told Stewart he couldn’t do that in her house, he struck her in the left eye and she fell to the floor, the citation said.

Stewart later would call for an ambulance and troopers went to the home after the woman had returned to it. According to police, she told troopers they could enter a bedroom where Stewart was after he failed to open the door.

When troopers entered the room, a “large knife” was on the floor by the bed, according to the arrest report. When he failed to show his hands from underneath a blanket, a stun gun was used although it didn’t strike him. When troopers tried to put him in handcuffs, the citation said he kicked a hospital-type bed table that hit one officer in the abdomen. A state trooper also reportedly suffered a cut on his left hand during the altercation, according to the citation.

Stewart also is charged with fourth-­degree assault – domestic violence with minor injury; possession of drug paraphernalia; resisting arrest and first offense possession of synthetic drugs.
