JACKSON-On Saturday night, shortly after 9pm, Jackson Police Officers Davis, Minissale and Thomason responded to a residence on Topaz Drive on the report of an intoxicated male causing a disturbance.

Upon arrival, the officers encountered the 27 year old male outside a party at the residence where he appeared to be intoxicated while he confronted the officers with profanity and threats. After speaking with family members at the scene, it was decided that the male would be transported to an area hospital for treatment. As this happened, the male became uncooperative with the officers and a struggle ensued where he was placed in handcuffs.

Upon attempting to place the male into a police vehicle, he thrashed his head back as he attempted to strike an officer and then while Officer Davis attempted to restrain him from doing so, he bit the officer’s hand.

Another struggle ensued to control the male while an ambulance was now called to the scene to transport him.

The male was transported to an area hospital and summons complaints charging him with obstruction, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer were prepared.

Police did not release the name of the offender.
