Williston man head-butts officer during arrest

WILLISTON, N.D. - Police say a Williston man head-butted an officer following his arrest Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded to a domestic assault call made by the man's significant other. When officers arrived they identified the man as Christopher Alexander Hopkins, and found one or more outstanding warrants for his arrest.

While the officers attempted to speak to Hopkins's significant other, police say Hopkins started shouting profanities at her.

One of the officers reportedly told Hopkins to stop, and that is when police say Hopkins head-butted him, causing the officer injury.

Hopkins is charged with aggravated assault and simple assault on a peace officer, which are both Class C felonies.
