DENVER (AP) - A judge has postponed the arraignment for a man accused of attacking a Denver police officer and trying to grab her gun while she tried to arrest him.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1z2mr68 ) 27-year-old Stephen Hamper was set to enter a plea Thursday, but his attorney said he has new medical records to present to the district attorney. The judge rescheduled the hearing for Jan. 22.

Hamper has been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and trying to disarm a peace officer.

The officer was responding to reports of a man wandering in traffic and washing his clothes in a storm drain in south Denver on Sept. 6. Investigators say Hamper broke loose when the officer tried to handcuff him and hit her in the face and body with a closed fist several times.
