Man allegedly kicks deputy

A man arrested Friday night on a spouse abuse charge reportedly managed to kick a deputy in the chest and head, according to police reports.

Deputy Robert Miller arrested Tony Lemar Thompson at his home on Scharber Road on a spouse abuse charge.

As Miller was driving on State Road 52 Thompson pounded his head against the plexiglass shield, records show. Then he rolled over on his back, "kicking the window on the left door and the rear window," Miller said in his report.

Miller pulled over and was joined by another deputy and an officer from the Community Oriented Policing unit. Thompson kicked Miller in the chest and head, but he was not seriously hurt, records show.

Bail for the spouse abuse charge was $500. But for striking the officer, Thompson's bail was set at $15,000, according to an arrest affidavit.
