CINCINNATI, Ohio (WLWT) — An arraignment hearing took place Friday morning for the man accused of injuring a Cincinnati police officer during a struggle.
Steven Tyler Manning, 30, is charged with burglary, assault and resisting arrest for a Thursday morning incident in Carthage.
Officer Tyler Lane received 12 stitches after suffering a three- to-five-inch laceration on his forehead.
Manning allegedly kicked in the door at an apartment in Carthage, punched a woman, then punched and bit a man who came to help her. When Lane responded to the call, the two men allegedly struggled and both were injured.
Manning was hospitalized briefly, too, after the struggle that sent the two of them smashing through a window.
Prosecutor Dave Wood recited part of Manning’s criminal record in court. Previous charges against him include drug trafficking and weapons charges.
“Most significantly felonious assault with a gun specification for which he served a four year prison sentence,” Wood said.
Manning was ordered held on $350,000 bond.
