A Longview man was arrested Thursday after police said he poured coffee on an officer, then hit him on the head with his coffee cup.
Raymond Gately, 58, of Longview was charged with assault of a public servant, according to arrest reports.
According to the report, Officer Bill England responded to a home in the 100 block of North Lane Wells Drive in reference to a dispute over a dog. England began speaking with Gately, who was being accused of taking his neighbor's dog.
Gately grabbed England by his shirt, poured a cup of coffee on him and hit him on the head with the coffee cup. Gately then reached for something around his belt line, which England said he believed was a weapon. England said he used a Taser on Gately, but Gately returned inside. Gately came out of the home later and was arrested.
