Midland Man Arrested on Numerous Charges

MIDLAND - It took quite some doing to get a Midland man in handcuffs. First, he tried to hide from officers in his bed, then he's accused of attacking them.

32-year-old Chad Leascher is behind bars charged with assaulting a peace officer along with numerous misdemeanors. Police say Leascher got into an argument with a woman on the way back from Big Spring.

According to the affidavit, he took away the woman's cell phone when she tried to call 9-1-1. When officers responded to a home in the 44-hundred block of Andrews Highway, Leascher ran to his bed and covered himself up. He also fought off officers forcing one of them to hit him with a flashlight to get him under control.

Police say he was intoxicated.
