Publicily Intoxicated Man Puches Officer 8/6/12 7.30a AF

A transient man was arrested in Santa Cruz Saturday after punching a police officer in the face.   42-year-old Nicholas O’Donnell was approached by an officer near Pacific Avenue and Beach Street around 9am after he was seen smoking in a non-smoking area.   When the officer made contact with O’Donnell he noticed that the man was displaying signs of intoxication.   O’Donnell has been arrested 9 times for public intoxication since March.   After O’Donnell was confronted, he began verbally abusing the officer, told him he had better call for back-up, and then punched him in the face.   O’Donnell was arrested for suspicion of public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battering a peace officer.
