A man has been charged with assaulting and injuring three Secret Services officers after he allegedly illegally entered White House grounds.

The officers were injured when they tried to stop Dane Nairns, who is accused of grabbing one of the officer’s gun belts, NBC News reports. Two other officers were injured when they tried to detain the suspect. One of the officers was kicked in the eye by Nairns, according to an affidavit.

“The individual disobeyed verbal commands of the officer to not enter the restricted area, and the suspect began to run,” a Secret Service spokeswoman said. “The suspect was placed under arrest after the arresting officer fought with him as he was actively resisting arrest and had grabbed the officer’s duty belt.”

The officers escaped serious injury and suffered scrapes and bruises. Nairns has been charged with assaulting police officers.

When Nairns ignored commands to stay off White House grounds, he allegedly responded, “You know who I am. I’m the guy who called in the President.”

Former FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Freeze has been appointed head the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

“I am confident Christopher Freeze will do a great job leading MDHS,” Gov. Phil Bryant said in a statement. “His intellect and leadership experience as a Special Agent in Charge at the FBI makes him an excellent fit to guide the agency during this period of transition. I am grateful he has accepted this appointment.”

Freeze, a 23-year veteran of the FBI, retired earlier this year as special agent in charge of the Jackson Division, which he led since November 2016.

Freeze held leadership positions in the Houston and Counterterrorism divisions and worked extensively in intelligence. A firearms instructor, Freeze served as a member of the SWAT and Evidence Response Teams.

In his new position, Freeze will lead an agency responsible for providing services ranging from public assistant and social services to support for children and low-income people.

“It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Executive Director of this important agency,” Freeze said. “MDHS touches the lives of so many families within Mississippi and my goal is to help the great employees at MDHS continue to provide vital and life-changing services to Mississippi’s children and families in need.”
