Man charged with assaulting a police officer remanded

An east side resident remains in custody after a weekend incident where a man assaulted a police officer and tried to get ahold of her gun.

The Telegraph-Journal reports 38 year old Gary Neil Johnston told the judge had had missed several days of medication when the incident occurred Saturday at his home on Midwood Avenue. He says he doesn’t remember any of it.

The Judge remanded Johnston in custody until a bail hearing tomorrow on a total of eight charges.
