Battery of police officer

By The Mercury

Riley County officers arrested a 24-year-old man early Saturday morning for battery against a law enforcement officer in Aggieville.

Officer Matthew Droge said officers were first called to Tubby’s Sports Bar and Grill, 1127 Moro St., for reports that Amautus Griffith, Fort Riley, would not leave the premises.

Droge said when officers attempted to make contact, an altercation ensued, during which Griffith allegedly pushed and swung at Officer Ryan Doehling. Droge said Doehling was not injured.

He was arrested for battery against a law enforcement officer, criminal trespass and resisting arrest. He was released to Fort Riley on $4,000 bond.
