A Coralville man has been charged with allegedly kicking and attempting to bite a police official.

Brice Widstrom, 20, Coralville, was charged Monday with assault on peace officers and others.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, Widstrom was in custody of the Hope House and was taken to UIHC after reportedly making suicidal threats. He allegedly escaped and refused to obey officers who ordered him to remain calm and stop resisting.

Widstrom also reportedly refused to be handcuffed and instead allegedly kicked one officer and attempted to bite another, the complaint said.

Assault on a peace officer and others is considered a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
