A 26-year-old man is in jail on multiple charges of assault, including assault on a police officer.
Police say Adam Herndon was taken to Memorial Hospital on suspicion of drugs after officers responded to an apartment on the Springs northeast side around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. Herndon's girlfriend reportedly told police he assaulted her.
When Herndon was in a hospital bed, he pulled out his IV with his teeth, and bit his brother who was trying to stop him, according to police. When an officer tried to stop the suspect, Herndon allegedly punched that officer in the arm and then kicked a hospital tech in the chest.
Herndon is in jail on two counts of 3rd degree assault and one count of 2nd degree assault on a peace officer.
