Cedar Rapids man charged with assaulting officer

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A Cedar Rapids man was arrested early Thursday morning for public intoxication and got himself in more trouble when an officer says he assaulted him.

Police were outside of a downtown bar when a man started shouting expletives at them.

The officers approached Joshua White, 24 of Cedar Rapids, to find out if he needed any help.

After talking with White, officers decided to arrest him for public intoxication.

While the officers were taking White to the car in handcuffs, he spit in the face of Officer Nathan Baughn and then tried to kick him.

White is now charged with Public Intoxication, Assaults on Peace Officers and Firefighters and Interference with Official Acts.
