A Clarksville man is behind bars after spitting on a police officer.
On Wednesday, police responded to an aggravated assault call in the 600 block of Fieldstone Court.
Upon arrival, authorities spoke with a woman who gave a written statement saying that 27-year-old Nadhim Al Mosawi began to scream and cuss at her.
According to the woman, Mosawi threatened to shoot up her house then went to his vehicle and reached inside.
The woman believed he was reaching for a weapon, so she ran indoors and called 911.
Mosawi was still sitting in his car in the driveway when police arrived.
While authorities were detaining Mosawi, his mother came outside and became agitated regarding the situation.
Mosawi then spit in the officer's face.
He was arrested, charged with aggravated assault and transported to the Montgomery County jail.
