An Iowa City man has been accused of pushing an officer.

Christopher Halverson, 39, was charged Sept. 21 with interference with official acts causing bodily injury.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, Halverson was denied entry into the press box at Kinnick Stadium twice.

Halverson and a guest became upset and threw their tickets on the ground.  They began to leave, but officers asked them to come back.

When an officer approached him from the back, grabbing his arm, Halverson reportedly swung around to resist and pushed the officer into the brick column.

The officer suffered a scraped arm as a result.

Interference with official acts causing bodily injury is an aggravated misdemeanor.
