Assault on an Officer

2/24/08 – Building JJ – 2:39 a.m. – case closed

University Police Department officers responded to a disturbance coming from a room in the residence hall. The eight occupants admitted they had been drinking, and said they were just wrestling and ‘playing around.’ All but one of them was underage. Officers assessed their condition and determined that one male individual required further medical attention. As officers escorted the subject to a car, he kicked one of them, head-butted the vehicle and attempted to head-butt another officer. The subject’s legs had to be restrained, and he proceeded to rub his face against the asphalt on the road, yelling that the officers were hurting him. He was placed under arrest for assaulting an officer. After receiving treatment at GW Hospital for the self-inflicted scratches on his face, he was taken to the Metropolitan Police Department’s Second District police station for processing.

Subject arrested.
