BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- A man who allegedly spit on a Battle Creek Police Officer early Sunday has been arrested for assaulting an officer.

A State Trooper was also present during the traffic stop just after 1 a.m. near Woodrow and Eldred Street.

The trooper asked the suspect to exit the car so they could check for weapons. He became uncooperative and had to be cuffed.

That’s when they claim the spitting occurred.

They had to make a stop at the emergency room to get the suspect treated for an abrasion to his face before taking him to the Calhoun County Jail.
