On Nov. 23 at about 6:15 p.m., Smyrna Police responded to the 600 block of Dairy Drive after a report of a domestic dispute. Police talked with the victim who said that during an altercation with Brian Hudson he had threatened to kill her.

Police said Brian E. Hudson, 43, was intoxicated and refused to comply with the demands of officers to show his hands. As an officer attempted to place Hudson under arrest, Hudson punched the officer in the face.

While attempting to subdue him a second time, Hudson again punched the officer in the face causing damage to the officers glasses.

Hudson was charged with second degree assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, terroristic threatening, offensive touching and two counts of criminal mischief.

He was presented at Justice of the Peace Court  2 and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center to await another court appearance on a $6,500 bond and a $10,000 cash only administrative warrant for violation of probation.

The police officer was OK and did not require hospital treatment.
