MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - The man involved in a scuffle with a Middletown officer was in court Thursday.

Eric German, 45, pled not guilty by reason of insanity.

German was indicted Wednesday for felonious assault, impersonating a peace officer, obstructing official business, failure to comply and failure to stop after an accident.

Police say German hit a woman's car on July 21, then took off. When officer Jason Deaton attempted to pull him over, German fought with the officer and was eventually Tasered.

The fight was caught on dash cam video.

German is being held in the Middletown Jail on a $500,000 bond.
