Minot officers transported Singer to Trinity Hospital for a blood draw. While at the hospital, Singer became hostile, got a hand free and struck an officer as they were handcuffing him.
Minot PD knows the importance of being cautious and aware during every situation.
"There`s no such thing as a routine call. And as a result of that, you have to be prepared as a police officer to be able to defend yourself, defend your life, or the safety of others as well, at any given time for any circumstance, because there`s no such thing as routine,” stated Sr. Patrolman Aaron Moss.
Singer was charged with Simple Assault on a Peace Officer, a Class C Felony. He could face a $5,000 fine and up to five years in prison.
