MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - A 39-year-old man is facing multiple after assaulting an officer in downtown Mankato Friday night.

Public Safety says a TASER was used to restrain the man before he was booked into Blue Earth County Jail.

Herring faces charges of disorderly conduct, 4th and 5th-degree assault, terroristic threats, and obstruction of law enforcement. No bail has yet been set.
