MIDLAND - Being accused of keying his girlfriend's car was just the beginning of a Midland man's troubles.

28-year-old Dylan McGowan is charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

On Monday night, a woman told officers that McGowan keyed her car after an argument.

McGowan claimed he caused the scratches by falling on the car.

Police say he reeked of alcohol.

When they tried to arrest him for criminal mischief, he didn't go quietly.

Officers say that McGowan struggled and tried to bite one of them.

Then after he was put in the patrol car, McGowan started banging his forehead against the car window.
