ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The FBI in Albuquerque says a Newcomb man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a federal law enforcement officer on the Navajo Reservation.

Authorities say 36-year-old Larry Emerson Jr. was taken into custody Wednesday in Gallup.

Assisting the FBI with the arrest were the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office and Gallup police.

Authorities say Emerson is accused of assaulting a Bureau of Indian Affairs-commissioned Navajo Police Officer in Shiprock on July 6.

Emerson is expected to have an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on Thursday.

It was unclear Wednesday if he has a lawyer yet.
