MIDLAND - A Midland man ends up in handcuffs on charges of beating up a woman and attacking an officer.

Police arrested 34-year-old Queston Barton.

Police arrested him on family violence charges this past Saturday.

The victim's friend flagged down police officers to her car where the victim was found with a bleeding mouth.

When police officers tried to put Barton in the patrol car, he kicked and elbowed one of them.

That was enough to slap on a second charge of assault on him.
