A Bristol man assaulted another man who would not give him a ride, then assaulted three of the police officers who responded to investigate, according to police.
Several police officers responded to 187 West Morningside Drive in Bristol at 7:22 p.m. on Thursday to investigate an assault and discovered that a man had assaulted a 41-year-old man when the victim refused to provide the suspect with a ride, police said.
The suspect, identified as William Brown, 36, of the same Bristol address, refused to cooperate with police, fought the officers who were trying to arrest him, then assaulted the officers, police said.
Three officers sustained minor injuries and Brown was charged with three counts of assault on a police officer, breach of peace in the second degree, interfering with a police officer and assault in the third degree.
Brown was held on a $100,000 bond and will be arraigned this morning in Bristol Superior Court.
