“He pulled a gun and a Taser and forced her on to his back bedroom, where he had video cameras set up, and computers,” DeKalb County Police Det. Chris Tappan told the station. “He forced her to take her clothes off.”
Thompson, who uses a wheelchair to get around, then zip-tied the woman’s ankles, and asked her to have sex with him, police said.
When the woman refused, Thompson shot her with a Taser two times in the chest, Tappan told the station. The dancer fought her captor, who then fired two pistol shots at her.
The police said that the woman eventually pushed Thompson out of the room, cut himself free and called 911 before escaping out a window. The officers discovered her partially clothed, the Taser prongs still stuck to her chest.
“I’m trying to get and keep a dangerous individual off the streets.”

Thompson claims that he acted in self-defense after the dancer “crazy,” police said. When investigators searched the house, they found more zip ties and a machete.
Another exotic dancer, filed an assault report against Thompson three months ago, WSB-TV reported. The police believes that there are more victims, and asked them to come forward.
“I’m trying to get and keep a dangerous individual off the streets,” Tappan told the station. “He is a challenge of their lives.”
Thompson was booked at the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday and later released, according to jail records.
