Deputy kicked in groin during arrest

CROFTON, Md. - An Anne Arundel sheriff's deputy was kicked in the groin on Thursday.

Authorities were dispatched to a home in the 1500 block of Crofton Parkway at about 6:30 p.m., to serve a Protective Order against David Briers. The order was filed by Briers's mother.

Briers became uncooperative, a spokesman said, when officers attempted to take him out of the house. 

When sheriffs began to detain Briers a struggle ensued. During the scuffle, Briers managed to kick one of sheriffs in the groin. 

After a long struggle, Briers was subdued and transported to the Western District Police Station for processing, where he was charged with two counts of second degree assault on a law enforcement officer, one count of failure to comply with a court order, and one count of resisting arrest.

He is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on a $25,000 bond.

A release from the Sheriff's Office did not specify the nature of the sheriff's injury.
