CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local former Olympic boxer who has had numerous run-ins with the law has been arrested again.

Ronald Siler, 28, faces new charges of resisting arrest, obstruction of justice and assault after a police officer says Siler attacked him.

Court documents say Siler entered the Hamilton County courthouse in an agitated state and tried to cut into a line. He was asked to go to the back of the line, and then said he didn't have time and tried to leave the buidling.

When officers approached, they said Siler would not stand still and looked like he was going to run. One officer grabbed his arm, and then Siler started attacking the officers, striking one in the mouth.

Siler's bond was set at 10 percent of $7,000.

Siler has faced several charges in the past, including attempted felonious assault, drug possession and a probation violation.

In 2006, he appeared before Judge Norbert Nadel, who ordered him to schedule more fights or go to jail. He decided to avoid jail and scheduled two fights. Siler had said he had stopped scheduling fights because they didn't pay enough.

Siler competed in the 2004 Olympic games in Athens, Greece.
