Bellcourt's brother held his arms so the officer could handcuff him, and Bellcourt allegedly spit in the officer's face as he was being put into a squad car. He also spit all over the inside of the squad car.

He appeared May 24 before District Judge Joe Evans, who set cash bail or bond at $5,000 and set his next court appearance for June 28.
