A Brooksville man who was arrested on domestic battery charges faces additional charges after police say he resisted arrest and brought a knife into the Hernando County Detention Center on Sunday.

Brooksville Police responded to the home of Salvatore Pugliese, 59, in the 800 block of Peach Street, in response to a domestic battery call.

When officers tried to arrest Pugliese, who was visibly intoxicated, he pulled away, according to a report. After a brief struggle in which Pugliese was told to stop resisting, officers used a stun gun on him and took him into custody, the report said.

During a search, Pugliese told officers he had no weapons on him. At the jail, officers found a money clip with two hidden folding knife blades on it in Pugliese’s pocket, according to the report.

Pugliese was charged with domestic battery, resisting an officer and introducing contraband into a detention facility. He was being held in the Hernando County Detention Center without bond.
