Auburn man denies assaulting, injuring police officer

An Auburn man has pleaded not guilty to attacking a police officer last year.

Justin Gervais, 22, of 123 Wall St. Apt. 3, was arraigned Thursday morning in Cayuga County Court after a grand jury handed down a three-count indictment, charging him with second-degree assault, a felony; resisting arrest, a misdemeanor; and loud and unnecessary noise, a violation.
