A Jacksonville man faces eight criminal charges after he kicked and spat in a North Little Rock police officer's face Wednesday, according to an arrest report.

North Little Rock police arrested Alorti Damarcus Weaver, 27, on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of controlled substances, possession of controlled substances with purpose to distribute, third-degree battery, disorderly conduct, first-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental operations, the report said.

When two North Little Rock officers saw Weaver, who had several warrants out for his arrest, near 4500 Boyer St., they pulled over and placed him in handcuffs, the report said. Weaver began kicking at officers, striking one officer in the face, and spitting on them before one of the officers pepper sprayed him, the report said.
