Police said suspect Marico Ferrick started acting aggressively toward officers. He tried headbutting an officer, and spit in his face. Officers used pepper spray to get him into handcuffs.

Officers later learned the retired officer lost her ID earlier this month. Police don’t know how Ferrick got the ID or why he held on to it.

Ferrick is facing charges for assaulting the officer, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and not having a driver’s license. He’s also facing a charge for “unlawful use of a license,” for having the retired officer’s license without permission.
