A 30-year-old man faces a number of charges, including assaulting a police officer, after an altercation early Tuesday morning.

Shortly after midnight, RCMP responded to a fight at a bar in North Battleford. The disagreement involved a staff member of the establishment and a customer. When an RCMP officer tried to make an arrest, the patron resisted and began biting the officer.

The officer was taken to hospital in North Battleford and treated for serious bites. Elvis Stone, who had several outstanding warrants, was arrested and charged.
