Clay County, Kentucky deputies say a Manchester City man was taken into custody Saturday after reportedly assaulting two people, including a police officer and police dog.
Police responded to reports of a man being beaten and shot with a pellet gun. The victim was not identified by authorities.
When they arrived they encountered the alleged assailant, 58-year-old Michael Hubbard who was disorderly and screaming at officers. The report states Hubbard ran behind a house and picking up a wooden board with nails sticking out. Officers say Hubbard then assaulted the officers and his police dog. Authorities tased Hubbard after he refused to obey verbal commands. Following a struggle with police, Hubbard was arrested and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police said on the way to the hospital Hubbard tried to kick the windows out of the police car.
Hubbard reportedly assaulted security staff while being treated at the hospital.
Hubbard was charged with second and third degree assault, resisting arrest, evading police, menacing, third degree criminal mischief, second degree disorderly conduct and non-alcohol public intoxication. After being released from the hospital, Hubbard was taken to the Clay County, Kentucky Detention Center.
