CLAY COUNTY, Mo. — Clay County prosecutors filed charges on Monday against a man they believe injured a sheriff’s deputy and damaged a patrol vehicle while resisting arrest.
According to a Facebook post from Clay County Sheriff’s Department, Justin Dean Willming, 26, kicked a deputy in the face when the deputy tried to take him into custody for a felony warrant.
The sheriff’s department says even after Willming was taken into custody he continued to struggle with the deputy and at one point headbutted the back window of a patrol vehicle. The window broke.
Willming and the deputy were taken to the hospital for treatment.
The 26-year-old has been charged with assault on law enforcement, resisting arrest, and property damage. His bond was set at $10,000.
