An eastern Missouri man is jailed after brawling down two flights of stairs with police officers.
The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Mo. (http://bit.ly/1kf0FVD ) reports that 42-year-old Eddie Gibbs of Park Hills is charged with two counts of assault on law enforcement.
The incident happened Nov. 27 when police went to a Park Hills apartment to question Gibbs about the non-fatal shooting of a woman.
Authorities say Gibbs tried to run away. A struggle began near a staircase. Gibbs and two officers fought while they went down the steps. At the bottom, Gibbs allegedly bit an officer, then hit him in the mouth and eye with his elbow before escaping.
Gibbs was found at a convenience store in nearby Desloge a short time later, and arrested.
