Police say a London resident faces several charges after officers were assaulted during the arrest of an impaired driver.
Huron County OPP was conducting a R.I.D.E. check at the intersection of Blythe Road and Brussels Line near Walton around 12:30 Thursday morning.
Officers were speaking with the driver of a sports utility vehicle, according to police, when they observed evidence of alcohol consumption in the vehicle.
The driver failed a breathalyzer test and was then arrested when he became verbally abusive and resisted, kicking two officers and the cruiser while wearing steel-toed boots.
The officers suffered minor injuries and the driver was arrested.
The 34-year-old man faces charges including two counts of assaulting a peace officer and uttering threats.
He has a court appearance scheduled for early March.
