DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in central Iowa say a man faces multiple charges for biting a deputy and trying to avoid arrest.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says 18-year-old Devin Joseph Emery Enos was stopped Wednesday afternoon for driving a stolen vehicle.
A deputy attempted to place Enos into custody, but the teenager allegedly began struggling with the officer. Enos is accused of biting the deputy before being placed into arrest.
Enos was charged with a previous warrant for attempted burglary. He also faces charges of theft, assault on a police officer causing injury, interference with official acts causing injury and no driver’s license.
Enos remains at the Polk County Jail. Court records do not list an attorney.
