Man charged with assault

A White Earth man charged with felony fourth degree assault on a peace officer made his first court appearance in Becker County Court.

Wallace William Weaver, 44, was arrested May 11 after authorities responded to reports of a burglary on White Earth.

A witness reportedly watched Weaver break into a trailer before walking into the woods north of the property.

Officers found him there, breathing into a plastic bag, as if he were “huffing” something. His hands were sprayed with paint.

When officers tried escorting him out of the woods, Jones allegedly resisted, spitting on the officers.
