SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) A Santa Fe man is jailed without bond after allegedly stabbing a police officer with his badge's pin during a scuffle. Police say 52-year-old Christian Barney ran from officers who were trying to cite him for jaywalking. They say Barney then fought with officers, ripped off one of their badges and used the exposed pin to puncture the officer's left forearm.
Police say Barney was booked into the Santa Fe Count jail on suspicion of aggravated battery and aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting or obstructing an officer and criminal damage to property.
The Santa Fe New Mexican says Barney was charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault on a police officer in September 2010. Those charges were later dropped by the state following a competency evaluation.
