Court Date Set For Man Charged With Assault

A January 3rd court date has been set for a Cookeville man, charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, public intoxication and criminal trespassing.  Police say 55-year-old Donald Keith Baumann of South Washington Avenue, allegedly spit on officers and kicked at them as they were attempting to arrest him last week. Authorities say Baumann had shown up at the Kroger store, in spite of being told that he was not welcome there.  Store officials claim Baumann was intoxicated and refused to leave, so they called police. According to the report, he kicked two officers and also cursed and threatened them as they took him to jail.
