Suspect Fights Officer, Tries to Take Gun

At least one person won't be celebrating Saint Patrick's Day. Nathan Self is in jail for fighting with a police officer and trying to take his gun.

Savannah-Chatham police say Sgt. Ashley Brown was responding to a burglary call on West 37th when he encountered Self. Officers say Self hit Brown in the face, broke Brown's finger and tried to grab his gun.

They're holding Self without bond, charged with aggravated assault on a police officer and attempting to remove a gun from a police officer.
