MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man is in custody after a scuffle with police that injured an officer.

Authorities say the 29-year-old man became hostile and resisted officers who responded to a neighborhood dispute late Sunday and smelled marijuana. They say the man fought with officers trying to handcuff him, and one of the officers suffered a broken hand.

The man was arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer, preventing arrest and possessing methamphetamine. Formal charges were not immediately filed.

Police say the suspect’s 57-year-old mother was arrested for obstruction, a 25-year-old man at the scene was arrested on drug-related charges and a 46-year-old man was arrested on an outstanding Ward County warrant.
