EAST SPENCER — Authorities charged a Mooresville man after they say he headbutted an officer and kicked another.
Aaron Logan Honeycutt, 22, of Charlotte Highway, was charged Saturday with two counts assault on a government official, resisting a public officer, intoxicated and disruptive, misdemeanor possession of stolen goods.
According to an arrest warrant, Honeycutt appeared intoxicated while traveling in the 400 block of Heiligtown Road, East Spencer.
