HENRICO COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico man accused of roughing up four police officers will be in court Thursday.

Brandon Ruffin was arrested last month after police say he charged at the officers and broke the nose of one cop with a head butt.

It happened at the Essex Village Apartments.

Ruffin is charged with marijuana possession and three counts of assault on police.
