SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- A Spokane police informant who went to buy methamphetamine got his man, but not on a drug charge.

The informant says the dealer took the $60 police had given him to buy meth, then punched him on the head and pushed him down stairs.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://is.gd/R7n9p2 ) police arrested the 24-year-old suspect last week for investigation of robbery.
