South Salt Lake man accused of head-butting police officer
SALT LAKE CITY — A South Salt Lake man arrested in a domestic dispute faces additional charges after allegedly head-butting a police officer.
Jayvaughn Tyler Firethunder, 21, was taken into custody after his live-in girlfriend told police he punched and kicked her, according to charges filed Wednesday in 3rd District Court. When the woman's sister attempted to assist her, Firethunder kicked her in the side, according to the charges.
The arresting officer detected alcohol on Firethunder's breath and escorted him to a holding bench, where Firethunder suddenly head-butted the officer, telling him, "I'll see you in the street, and I'll shoot you," charges state.
Firethunder then attempted to head-butt another officer who witnessed the alleged assault, charges state.
He faces two counts of assault by a prisoner, a third-degree felony; two counts of assault, a class B misdemeanor; and single counts of making a threat of violence, a class B misdemeanor, and intoxication, a class C misdemeanor.
