Assault on P.O.
423 South 400 West

Officers had just issued a citation to Nathan Schaumkel (23yrs old). As Schaumkel started to walk away, he spit on one of the police cars and then proceeded to trespass onto private property. Schaumkel was asked to leave; he became combative and lunged at the officers in an attempt to assault them. During the struggle, he was taken to the ground in an attempt to handcuff him. Schaumkel stuck his hands into his pockets; officers realized that he had reached for a pocket knife that was open. They were able to disarm Schaumkel. Once in cuffs Schaumkel became more combative and began kicking at the officers also trying to head butt them. He was placed in the back of a patrol car, Schaumkel kicked out the driver’s side rear window. Schaumkel was transported to jail by Gold Cross with assistance from police. He was charged with Aggravated Assault on P.O., Resisting Arrest, Felony Criminal Mischief and Assault by a Prisoner.
