Nashville man charged with assault after striking officer

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville man is accused of hurting a police officer who was trying to break up a fight during a domestic disturbance.

Police said Michael McKissack has been charged with assault after he punched a police officer during a struggle with a neighbor.

McKissack crossed the street to try and fight the neighbor, who was in trouble for a domestic disturbance case, according to police.

When McKissack allegedly attempted to hit the neighbor, an officer held him back.

Instead of hitting the neighbor, police said McKissack hit the officer.
