URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) - Police have arrested a man suspected of pepper-spraying an Urbandale officer after a traffic stop.

An Urbandale police news release says 25-year-old Brandon Bordinat was arrested Thursday afternoon in Polk County. He’s charged with assault on a police officer and two counts of interference with official acts. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

Police say the incident began about 5:10 a.m. Thursday, when someone reported a possible traffic accident. The department says the officer spotted a vehicle that matched the description of a vehicle reportedly involved, so the officer pulled it over.

The department says that after the officer started talking to the driver, the man sprayed the officer and fled the scene.
