NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested a 30-year-old for assaulting a public servant after he allegedly struck one of them in the jaw with his elbow when they tried to pat him down for weapons.

Chad Coburn King, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of assaulting a public servant and a Class A misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, search, or transport. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office daily activity report, deputies were dispatched to a home in the 5100 block of FM 1275 on a welfare check. They were advised that a male subject on the scene that was later identified as King was having a "very lengthy manic episode."

When the deputies attempted to talk to King, he allegedly became irate and refused to calm down. Then, during a pat-down check for weapons, King reportedly elbowed one of the detectives in the jaw, causing a minor injury. After a brief struggle, King was detained, and the deputies had to physically carry him out of the residence and put him into an NCSO patrol car, according to the daily activity report.

During the trip to the Nacogdoches County Jail, King allegedly kicked and banged his head on surfaces inside the patrol car.
