EMS arrived and began to transport Pinn on the stretcher; then Pinn woke up being aggressive, swinging at the paramedics. Officers tried to ask Pinn to lie back down, and then Pinn responded by spitting in Officer Bergquist’s face and headbutting Officer Ntahonirukiye’s lip even after being told to stop multiple times. Pinn was taken into custody for public intoxication, two counts of assault on officers, and resisting arrest.
