Prince William County Police said an intoxicated man kicked and spat on officers when they tried to put him in a police cruiser Saturday night.
Twenty-year-old Jose Ramirez-Alvarado is charged with assault and battery, police reports show.
The incident began at a traffic stop at 2:24 a.m. at Sudley Road and Sudley Manor Drive in Manassas.
During the stop the suspect allegedly became increasingly irate and was arrested. He then began kicking and spitting while he was being placed in the back of the police car for transportation to jail.
