An Iowa City man faces numerous charges after he was stopped by Iowa City police on suspicion of drunk driving.

Jerry Jones, 30, was charged Wednesday with second-offense OWI, habitual driving with a barred license, and two counts of assaulting on a police officer.

Jones allegedly had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, reported the officers, who noted his pupils as being abnormally small.

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, Jones was taken into custody for driving with a barred license and OWI. While at the Iowa City police station, he allegedly became irate, spitting at an officer and swearing. The complaint said officers had to handcuff Jones to a bench in order to control him.

Jones allegedly attempted to chew through the hose on the breath-test machine, and when moved to the report-writing room, he allegedly kicked at an officer, missing him.
