An 18 year old Bismarck man is behind bars for taking a few cheap shot punches on 2 Bismarck Police Officer.

Authorities were called to a local trailer park on an assault charge.

When cops arrived they were told the assailant fled out the back of the trailer house. They found the man on the back patio.

When officers tried to arrest the man, he threw a few punches striking both officers. One of the officers needed stitches above his right eye.

Not a smart move from the teenager as he now faces charges of assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

The incident took place Saturday afternoon.
