Police: Canyon Lake man arrested for striking deputy
NEW BRAUNFELS — After Comal County Sheriff’s Office deputies tried to help a man threatening to hurt himself, they arrested him for hurting a deputy, a CCSO spokesman said.
Deputies took Ryan Alexander Mulder, 22, of Canyon Lake, to Comal County Jail for one charge each of assault on a public servant and interfering with public duties, CCSO Lt. Mark Reynolds said. Mulder reportedly assaulted the deputy at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital-New Braunfels, while deputies and hospital staff tried to constrain Mulder.
“He’s kneeling on a hospital bed. When they’re trying to restrain him, he raised his right knee up striking the deputy in the face,” Reynolds said. “Then they were able to control him and let the hospital (staff) do what they needed to do.”
