Blotter: Police charge man with assault on public servant

A man police believed to be on acid, bit and kicked jailers as they were securing him in a cell Friday, according to police.

The 23-year-old man had been arrested just after 10 p.m. Friday on a charge of publication intoxication/non-alcohol after he was found lying in the 5100 block of Edwards Road, police said.

The man was transported to the city jail without incident. During the booking process, however, he started becoming agitated and violent and began fighting with officers and jailers while they were attempting to secure him in a cell, reports state.

During the struggle, the man bit two jailers and kicked another, police said. A second charge of assault on a public servant was added, police said.
