Uncooperative man arrested twice in same night

An 18-year-old Kingston man who refused to cooperate was arrested for assaulting an officer and then arrested again for refusing to leave the police parking lot.

On January 27, 2018 at approximately 12:00 a.m. police responded to a family disturbance call. The complainant reported his son had become destructive and violent and wanted him to leave for the evening. Police spoke with the accused who was verbally abusive with the complainant and refused to leave the residence at the request of police.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. officers placed the accused under arrest for trespassing. During the arrest the accused threw a punch at one officer. As the accused was transported to police headquarters he remained belligerent and began spitting in the rear of the cruiser.

At approximately 10:00 a.m. officers attended the cell block to release the accused who was immediately argumentative and belligerent with the officers. When the paper work was completed the accused was asked to leave. Once outside the accused would not listen to directions on how to exit the parking lot and began yelling and swearing at the officers while calling them on to fight and refusing to leave. When officers attempted to remove him from the property he resisted and was arrested again. The accused was placed back in cells and later released a second time with a future court date.

The accused was charged with assault police and mischief by interfering with police duties.
