Charles Meinhart Jr. was arrested on Sunday at a southwestern Pennsylvania county jail after he drunkenly threatened officers who refused to let him visit his father at the jail, police said.
The 24-year-old was arrested in Somerset, Pa., after cursing, using obscene gestures and trying to fight officials at the Somerset County Jail.
Meinhart is said to have appeared intoxicated and tried to slip his cuffed hands from behind his back and kicked at police who opened the back door of a police cruiser door.
He was charged with one count of aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, harassment, criminal trespass and public drunkenness and two counts of disorderly conduct.
Meinhart faces preliminary hearing on November 11. It was not immediately clear why his father is in jail.
