A Blue Springs man pleaded not guilty to assaulting a U.S. Marshal last year.
Jeremy D. Mick, 36, appeared in Gage County District Court Wednesday for an arraignment, where he pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and third-degree assault on a peace officer.
The charges stem from a Dec. 28 arrest while authorities were serving a warrant in southern Gage County.
Gage County deputies were assisting the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to locate a fugitive with an active warrant.
Authorities learned the individual with an active warrant was associated with Mick, and contacted him at 116 W. Broad St. in Blue Springs.
A female answered the door and allowed authorities inside the residence, court documents state.
Mick said the fugitive was not there and authorities contacted the homeowner who granted permission to search the rest of the residence.
Court documents state that once they had permission, Mick quickly moved to the stairs and ignored orders to stop.
He was detained, and authorities searched the upstairs. Court documents state there was a large piece of glass on which suspected methamphetamine was sitting, in addition to two glass smoking devices.
Clear baggies and a scale were also found. Mick was also found to have drug paraphernalia in a front pocket.
While being escorted out of the residence, Mick allegedly kicked a U.S. Marshal.
His next hearing date is set for May 30.
