“He replied by removing his shower sandal from his foot and wiping it across my left foreman,” Deputy Douglas Six wrote in the court records.
The deputies said they tried to calm Nawman down but said he refused to follow their orders and allegedly started to fight the deputies.
“He then rushed at me and grabbed hold of my arms and we went to the ground,” Six says in the report. “Deputy Young engaged us, physically attempting to gain control of Nawman and restrain him but he would not comply.”
Six said he used his pepper spray on Nawman but it had no effect. It took several deputies to get him under control, the affidavit says.
Nawman was charged with assault on a police officer. He pleaded not guilty in Clark County Municipal Court on Tuesday and his bond was set at $5,000.
