STANTON, Neb. (KTIV) - A Stanton, Nebraska man is facing charges after allegedly assaulting a county deputy.

The 27-year-old Jordan Wagner-Munozmade had his first appearance in court on Monday, Jan. 10, after being formally charged with felony assault on a police officer, along with resisting arrest and driving during suspension.

Authorities say Wagner-Munoz was arrested back in December 2021 by the sheriff’s office in Stanton County after he was observed driving while on suspension, and when contacted he refused to cooperate and resisted arrest.

During the struggle, he allegedly bit a sheriff’s deputy on the wrist before finally being subdued when other officers arrived on the scene. A female who was also present, Debra Thomsen of Stanton, was also charged with Obstructing a Police Officer for her actions during the struggle and had her first court appearance as well.

Both are scheduled to return to court on Feb. 8.
