Man throws hammer at police officer
A Marshalltown man is charged with two counts of assault on a peace officer after he threw a hammer at two police officers.
Benjamin L. Hibbs, 68, was arrested Monday, at 1010 Fremont Street, after he allegedly threw the tool at officers doing a warrant check on his friend, Karen Streeter, 67, of Marshalltown.
Capt. Brian Batterson of the Marshalltown Police Department, said when the police officers were dealing with Streeter, who has been wanted for about a month, for failing to comply for court order, Hibbs started banging a hammer against a truck.
As the two police were walking away they heard a metal object hit the ground behind them. The hammer did not hit the officers, but it landed close to them.
None of the officers were injured.
