A Racine man was charged with a number of crimes, one of them attempted battery of a law enforcement officer after he tried to headbutt a police officer numerous times during his arrest.

Dustin Ostergaard, 32, was pulled over after driving his car roughly 20 miles over the speed limit down Charles Street, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Ostergaard told the officer that he drank about six beers and had shots of vodka earlier in the day.

When police searched him and his car, they found Adderall. He didn’t have a prescription for the stimulant. Ostergaard also had 1.2 grams of marijuana, 34 vaping cartridges filled with cannabis oil, 15.7 grams of marijuana wax, vacuum seal bags, sandwich bags, and a digital scale.

He was being escorted to the Racine County Jail when he first attempted to headbutt the arresting officer. Later, when he was transported to the hospital for refusing a breathalyzer, he attempted to headbutt police several times.

He is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining a drug trafficking place, resisting an officer and attempted battery to a law enforcement officer.
