DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police say a 25-year-old New Jersey man has been charged with assaulting an officer.
An officer responding to complaints of a disorderly person on Saturday morning found the man in the middle of the street near the intersection of South Bradford and Loockerman streets.
Police say Andrew Born of North Brunswick, N.J., yelled profanities at an officer, who tried to take him into custody despite Born's resistance. Police say the officer was cut and his uniform was damaged.
Born was charged with second-degree assault of a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and several other offenses. He is being held on $26,000 bond.
