An Elkhart County Sheriff's Deputy is likely nursing a pretty bad headache after being head-butted by a suspect he was attempting to investigate.

95.3 FM reports that the officer attempted to question 20-year-old Justin Russell, who was yelling at someone inside a car at the intersection of County Road 20 and State Road 19.

Russell punched someone inside, and when the officer attempted to calm him down, he head-butted him and kicked him in the face.

The man is now behind bars on numerous charges.
