Merrill Man Assaults Deputy, EMT

A man from Merrill, IA assaulted an EMT and Plymouth County Deputy who were trying to treat him on Friday.

Authorities say a call of an intoxicated man at 22843 Hedge Avenue in Merrill was reported. When the EMT and Merrill Police arrived, authorities say John Andrew Emmons, 43, became agitated and punched the EMT in the face, causing minor injuries.

Authorities took Emmons into custody.

Once Emmons had calmed down, Plymouth County Deputies decided to remove one handcuff in order to assist in the investigation. Emmons then punched a Deputy in the face, causing minor injuries.

Emmons was charged with Assault on an EMT and Assault of a Peace Officer. He is currently being held at the Plymouth County Jail.
