July 25, 2005 -- A 36-year-old man is arrested and charged with aggravated assault of a police officer and possession of a controlled substance after a brief fight with an HPD Narcotics officer on Friday, July 22, 2005 at 12510 South Green around 10 p.m.

According to Houston Police Department Homicide Sergeant L.J. Baimbridge and Officer N.T. Ruland, HPD Narcotics officers were conducting an investigation at 12510 South Green when a narcotics suspect assaulted an officer. During the struggle, the suspect managed to push the officer to the ground. The suspect, Winthrop Eugene Bossett (bm/ DOB 12-15-68) reached under his shirt into his waistband as if to pull a weapon. The officer, fearing for his safety, pulled his pistol and fired once at the suspect and missed. The suspect fled on foot and was caught a short time later by patrol officers in the area. Neither the officer nor the suspect was seriously injured during the incident.

Charges were filed in the 185th State District Court.
