Storm Lake Man Charged with Assaulting Police Officer

A fight this past weekend led to the arrest of a Storm Lake man for assaulting a police officer.

The Storm Lake Police Department was called to a fight in progress at 138 Mae Street at around 2am Sunday. Upon arrival, police heard screaming coming from the back of the residence, at which time police allegedly saw a man covered in blood. The man, identified as 23-year-old Harley Bucheli of Storm Lake, was detained by officers on scene.

Police allege that Bucheli then spat on a Storm Lake Police officer. Bucheli was taken into custody and transported to the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center for treatment of apparent injuries sustained during the fight. Bucheli was ultimately treated and transported to the Buena Vista County Jail for booking on a charge of Assault on a Police Officer, a serious misdemeanor. Bucheli was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail on a one-thousand dollar bond.

Due to a lack of cooperation from those involved, police allege they were unable to determine details of the fight.
