A North Platte man has been charged with a felony after he allegedly fought with his girlfriend and North Platte Police.

At around 4:00 p.m., on August 12, officers responded to a residence in the 2300 block of East 5th Street, on the report of a physical disturbance.

Upon arrival, a 51-year-old female advised that her boyfriend, 53-year-old Paul Cooper, had assaulted her.  The victim said Cooper pushed her against a wall, then scratched both her arms and hands.

Following further investigation, officers determined that there was probable cause to arrest Cooper.

As officers attempted to take him into custody, Cooper struggled and resisted their efforts.

Eventually, Cooper was subdued and taken into custody.

Cooper was transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center and jailed on charges of felony resisting arrest and 3rd degree domestic assault.
