WILKES-BARRE — A man is behind bars in Luzerne County after being arrested over the weekend for assaulting a police officer.

Officers say Muhsin Sharif, 19, from Wilkes-Barre, elbowed an officer in the face and then took off after police in Sugar Notch busted an underage drinking party in April.

Police say several other juveniles were also arrested or cited for underage drinking.

Sharif was charges with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, underage drinking and defiant trespass.

Investigators said he posted about what happened on Facebook several hours after it happened.

Sharif is locked up with bail set at $25,000.
