BROKEN ARROW, OK (KTUL) – An Oklahoma teacher allegedly attacked an officer during an arrest.

Authorities were called to an accident after a driver ran a red light. The driver of the car, Joshua Wann, 29, reportedly smelled like mouthwash and alcohol.

Wann, an English teacher at Broken Arrow High School, failed several field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.

However, when the patrol car arrived at the jail, officers noticed that Wann had moved his handcuffs from behind his back to his front.

“As soon as he gets out of the car, he basically squares off with the officer and lunges at him, punching him across the face,” said Officer James Koch, with the Broken Arrow Police Department.

According to KTUL, an officer was hit with the handcuffs and Wann was tased.

Wann is facing charges of driving under the influence, failure to obey traffic control device, obstructing an officer, and felony assault and battery on a police officer.
