HELENA – Jacob Mathew Frye, a 30-year-old Helena man, is accused of injuring a police officer as the officer attempted to put him into a holding cell.

Court documents allege that Frye was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor partner-family member assault.

He pushed a woman to the ground as she tried to separate him from an altercation, according to court documents.

Police say he was intoxicated and acting belligerent, and has a conviction for partner-family member assault.

When police were trying to move him to a holding cell at the detention center, Frye allegedly resisted officers, injuring one in the shoulder while trying to hit him.

The judge set bond at $25,000.
