Police: Officer assaulted following arrest

SALISBURY — Authorities said a man struck a Salisbury Police officer in the face while he was being booked in jail Wednesday morning.
Terry Christopher Tandy, of Laurel Pointe Circle, was stopped by officers near the intersection of West Franklin and North Church streets about 3:45 a.m., according to a Salisbury Police report.
Police said they found Tandy had outstanding warrants on charges of larceny, two counts of assault on a female, misdemeanor stolen property and failure to appear in court.
Tandy was taken back to the Salisbury Police Department on East Liberty Street when he became “very combative,” Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said.
The report said Tandy refused to have his fingerprints taken in the booking room and struck officer J.R. Cable in the face, causing his face to hit the wall.
Whitley said the injuries were “very minor” and did not require medical treatment.
But officers added an additional charge of felony assault inflicting serious injury on an officer for Tandy.
The 32-year-old was in jail Thursday morning under a $14,000 bond.
