Dickinson Police Officer Assaulted

Posted:

Charges are pending for a Dickinson man after he allegedly landed punches on a police officer.

Police were called to the 1500 block of Dickinson Place around 2:30am Saturday morning.

A caller said a man was jumping around shouting profanities.

When officers arrived they located the man and tried to calm the situation.

Eventually the officers tased the man.

When that didn't work  Sgt. Kylan Klauzer says they were forced to go "hands on."

At that point--the suspect swung at officers landing punches to the face.

The 19-year-old man was arrested for assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and ingesting a controlled substance.

 

The 19-year-old was taken to a local hospital. The officer did not seek treatment.
