Man Charged After Fight with Police

An East Texas man is facing several charges after reportedly attacking a San Augustine police officer.

Officer Donnie Dickerson approached Jerry Crane Thursday night because his car was in the middle of the road with the lights off. Crane began acting strangely and was not cooperating with the officer.

During a struggle, Dickerson sprayed him with pepper spray. That's when Crane allegedly punched the officer in the head, leaving a huge bump.

Dickerson was treated at a hospital and released. Crane was charged with assault on a police officer, not having a driver's license, and blocking the roadway.
