Man accused of assault following encounter with Colorado officer

An encounter with a law enforcement officer can create stress for a variety of different people. Often, this stress can cause a person to react in a way that is out-of-character and could ultimately create a complicated legal situation. Unfortunately, a man in Colorado is now facing an assault charge, among others, following an interaction with police officers.

The incident reportedly happened around 10:30 p.m. on a day in June. Police claim they received a call about a man who was apparently in distress. According to reports, the caller claimed that the man was under the influence, bleeding and did not have on any clothing.

According to police, the man became aggressive when approached by an officer. Both the man, who reportedly punched the officer in the face, and the officer were transported to the hospital. They were both treated and released.

The man was taken into custody and now faces several charges, including second-degree assault on a police officer. Despite the charges against him, there are many events surrounding this incident that are unclear. Unfortunately, an incident such as this -- potential behavior that is an anomaly in the man's life if reports are accurate -- could have a significant impact on the rest of a person's life, creating professional, financial and personal complications. People in Colorado who have found themselves in a similar predicament may want a professional on their side who understands the charges against them as well as the potential consequences of a conviction. Such a professional can help those facing criminal charges decide on the most appropriate response.
