PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pierre man accused of struggling with police officers and striking one in the head is behind bars.

Police say the 25-year-old man had taken a number of bottles of alcohol from a business early Tuesday. Authorities say when police caught up with him, the man smashed his head into an officer’s head and then struggled with officers before he was restrained.

Dakota Radio Group says the officer was taken to Avera St. Mary’s Hospital and later released.

The suspect was taken to the Hughes County Jail.
