Amarillo, TX - An Amarillo man who assaulted a police officer has been sentenced to eight years behind bars.

Stephen Scott Whitaker was arrested in July 2009 after police discovered an outstanding warrant while questioning him about a theft at Elwood Park.

The arresting officer placed Whitaker in the back of the squad car and he began banging his head on the window, eventually breaking the glass.

He then repeatedly kicked the officer.

Whitaker was charged with assault against a public servant and, in addition to the jail time, must pay a $250 fine.
