Man charged with assault of officers
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Martinsburg man was charged with three counts of assault on police, fire or emergency personnel Thursday after he allegedly kicked medics and a police officer who pulled him from his wrecked Jeep, according to court records.
Christopher John Berry, 20, of 245 Hensel Ave., also was charged with DUI, underage consumption of alcohol, possession of marijuana, refusal to be fingerprinted and obstructing police. All of the charges are misdemeanors.
Deputy W.D. Christian, with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department, said Berry wrecked his Jeep at around midnight on Tuscarora Pike.
When Christian arrived, Berry was inside his Jeep, which was on its side. After Berry tried to hit medical personnel, he was handcuffed, records state.
Once he was removed from the Jeep, Berry kicked medics and kicked Christian in the face, records allege. A fellow officer used an electric Taser to subdue Berry, records state.
Berry, who refused medical treatment, kicked Christian's chest while officers were trying to put him in a police car, causing Deputy T.S. Shetley to again use the Taser, records state. Police found a jar of marijuana in Berry's pocket and a smoking device, records state.
While at the sheriff's department, Berry would not sign any paperwork or let officers fingerprint him. He also urinated on the floor of the processing room, police allege.
