SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An Ames man has been accused of interference with official acts after allegedly attempting to attack a staff member at Brother’s Bar.

Jacob Waugh, 19, was charged on Jan. 10 at Brother’s with possession of fictitious license, interfering with official acts, and assault causing injury to an officer.

Waugh was charged after reportedly attempting to attack a staff member when he was refused entry. In his wallet officers found a fake Wisconsin driver's license that contained Waugh’s name and a birthday indicating drinking age, according to an Iowa City police complaint.

Waugh was being arrested for public intoxication when he threw himself on the ground and refused to allow officers to place him in the patrol car. As the officers attempted to push Waugh into the vehicle, he bit one of the officers on the hand and threatened to kill both the arresting officer and his family, the complaint said.

Assault causing injury and interference with official acts are both considered aggravated misdemeanors, and possession of a fictitious license is a serious misdemeanor.
