A Coralville man has been charged after allegedly trying to pull an officer down a flight of stairs.

Donroy Merrival, 45, was charged Sunday with interfering with official acts causing bodily injury.

Merrival, who, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office complaint, was also charged with public intoxication and called 911 without having an emergency.

One officer dispatched to the scene reported suffering from an injury to the right thumb after Merrival, while in handcuffs, attempted to pull officers down the stairs of the apartment building.

Interference with official acts causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor, and public intoxication is a simple misdemeanor.
