Lee County, Al. - A 23 year-old Lee County man is facing felony charges after allegedly assault sheriff's deputies. On Monday December 30, 2013 around 9:10 p.m., the sheriff's office received a call from a home in the 600 block of Lee Road 263 Cusseta in northeast Lee County. A 20 year-old woman called reporting a domestic dispute involving her boyfriend who she said was intoxicated. 

Deputies were met by the caller at the home, and as they approached the front door of th house 23 year-old Alex M. Brown came onto the porch. He grabbed the female and shoved her off the porch. The deputies told Brown he was under arrest for Domestic Violence and when they attempted to take him into custody officials say he assaulted both deputies. Officials say he threw one deputy against a vehicle and then slammed the other on the ground. Brown ignored repeated commands to comply. Deputies used a taser on Brown and were eventually able to take him into custody.

Brown refused medical treatment. Both deputies were treated for injuries at the East Alabama Medical Center and then released. Brown has been charged with 2 counts of Second Degree Assault, 2 counts of Third Degree Domestic Violence and 1 count of Resisting Arrest. He posted a $12,500 bond and was released from the Lee County Detention Center. The case will be presented to a Lee County Grand Jury for consideration at the first of the year.
