A 27-year-old Winona man was arrested Monday afternoon after he allegedly assaulted a police officer at Winona Health.
Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said Brett Dennis was taken into custody at a residence in the 1150 block of west Seventh Street. He was then transferred to Winona Health because he showed signs of being on a controlled substance.
Williams said while at the hospital Dennis is alleged to spit on an officer and was cited with 4th degree felony assault.
The case was referred to the county attorney's office for formal charges.
