Assault against officer reported

By The Mercury

Officers arrested a 51-year-old Manhattan man Saturday after he allegedly assaulted a law enforcement officer and resisted arrest.

Sgt. Brad Ingalls said Rodwrick Webber, 51, 6236 Partridge Lane, was arrested for assault against a law enforcement officer and interference with law enforcement at approximately 9:50 p.m. in the 1000 block of N. 12th Street.

Ingalls said officers contacted Webber after allegedly observing him drunkenly yelling obscenities at passersby. He said Webber became aggressive after police approached him and lunged at several firefighters.

Webber allegedly continued to act aggressively after he was detained, Ingalls said, attempting to bite an officer in the face.

Webber was released on $5,000 bond.
