Francisco Mora, 30, of Perry was arrested Saturday on charges of first-degree harassment, violation of a no-contact order and interference with official acts.

A Perry man was tasered Saturday night after resisting his arrest for an alleged violation of a no-contact order.

Francisco Mora, 30, of 1816 Warford St., Perry, was charged with first-degree harassment, violation of a no-contact order and interference with official acts.

The incident began about 10 p.m. Saturday, when the the Perry Police Department received a 911 call from the female victim, who was “crying and screaming,” according to court records.

Officers of the Perry Police Department located the victim and Mora about 11:30 p.m. in a vehicle parked in the 1800 block of Warford Street. Mora was found to be in violation of a no-contact order, according to court records.

When the officers attempted to take Mora into custody, Mora allegedly became “combative and uncooperative” after he was directed “multiple times to get onto the ground and place his hands behind his back,” according to court records.

An officer deployed a “duty taser” on Mora, and he was thereafter “placed into custody,” according to court records.

In the course of his arrest, Mora allegedly “threatened to harm” an officer and to “take” the officer’s “life for attempting to arrest” Mora, according to court records.

Mora is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Oct. 5 in Dallas County District Court.

Mora was arrested on a charge of violation of a no-contact order in Perry in June. The case is pending in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of violation of a no-contact order in February 2022 and April 2022 in Dallas County District Court. He was the subject of a no-contact order issued in August 2021 in Glendale, California, and in effect until August 2031. He was convicted of third or subsequent offense domestic abuse assault in March 2022 in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of domestic abuse assault twice in 2017 in California, according to court records.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
