A 26-year-old man from Boone was arrested after injuring two Watauga County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

The Watauga Democrat reports Tyler Chase Watson was charged with assault of an officer, felony malicious conduct by a prisoner, resisting arrest and damage to property, as well as drug violations.

According to the report, Watson came at the deputies with a metal pipe, which he eventually dropped, but he did fight the officers while he was being taken into custody.

Watauga Medics were called to the scene to treat the deputies and Watson for minor injuries.

Watson was issued a $50,000 secured bond and is set to appear in court on April 12th.
