Coralville police arrested a homeless man after he allegedly slapped a woman and injured an officer while resisting arrest.

James Shaw, 21, address unknown, was charged Oct. 7 with domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury and two counts of interference with official acts causing bodily injury.

Complaints said Coralville police were called to a First Avenue residence for a domestic disturbance. The complaint said Shaw held a woman, whom he was romantically involved with, by her arms to keep her from moving and leaving and slapped the right side of her face. Shaw also allegedly spit on her several times.

When being arrested by police, the complaint said Shaw pulled away from officers and flailed his arms and legs, causing an officer to receive a laceration on his arm and left leg.

The complaint said the woman had swelling on her face and bruising on her arms.
