FORT PIERCE- A man accused of murdering an auto-shop owner two years ago became unruly and violent during an unrelated court hearing Monday, struggling with two courthouse deputies and reportedly trying to grab one deputy's gun.

The altercation left one deputy with a broken finger and the other with scratches and bruises on his hand. Now, Alwin Tumblin, 27, who is awaiting trial on the 2004 first-degree murder charge, faces new felony charges including battery on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer with violence, resisting an officer without violence and battery by expelled fluids for spitting on the deputies.
