Man arrested for battery

By The Mercury

Riley County officers arrested a Riley man Tuesday for multiple counts of battery following reports of a domestic disturbance allegedly involving the man.

Officer Matthew Droge said Zachary Evans, 21, was arrested for two counts of battery against a law enforcement officer, two counts of domestic battery and interference with law enforcement after police were called to a residence in Riley at about 10:30 Tuesday night.

Droge said the charges of battery against a law enforcement officer resulted when two Riley County officers attempted to arrest him. Neither was seriously injured.

Evans is confined on $5,000 bond.
