A juvenile faces several charges after spitting on and biting an officer following a physical domestic dispute.

Officers with the Braselton Police Department were called for the incident on Landon Ln.

A juvenile had reportedly got into an argument with a woman and had begun beating her. Meanwhile, a man at the residence grabbed the juvenile and they began fighting. The man tried to hold him down, but the juvenile escaped, got a fork and stabbed him in the chest.

When officers arrived at the scene, the man was holding the juvenile down with his hands on his neck. Two toddlers witnessed the incident.

That man, Cenica C. Adams, 41, 1749 Landon Ln., Braselton, was arrested for battery-Family Violence Act and two counts of third degree cruelty to children.

Meanwhile, officers attempted to detain the juvenile suspect, who tried to pull away and run. At one point, the juvenile spit in an officer's face.

They ultimately took the juvenile to the hospital since he may have consumed alcohol. At the hospital, the juvenile ran on foot and was again detained, then spit on the officer two more times and bit him. He also resisted and kicked.

When they got him into the hospital and on a bed, the juvenile tried to bite and spit again and made several comments about killing the officers. He also spit on a nurse.

Doctors ultimately gave the juvenile an anti-psychotic medication to calm him.

The juvenile faces charges of aggravated assault, two county of cruelty to children, three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, obstruction and escape.
