Man arrested for assaulting officers

On 3/18/10, at approximately 1:25 a.m., officers responded to a call from Seattle Center Security personnel, who had detained two males for crashing through several bollards that are meant to keep vehicles from entering onto the Center grounds. 

Both subjects were clearly intoxicated, officers attempted to take one of the suspects him into custody for DUI, when he immediately began to resist. The suspect refused to comply with orders to stop resisting. He bit one of the officers on the hand and repeatedly kicked at them. 

The suspect was finally taken into custody, and as officers were putting him in the back seat of the patrol car for transport, he rolled onto his back and kicked them.  He grazed one officer’s chest and kicked the other officer in the leg.

The suspect was arrested and transported to the North Precinct.   At the Precinct, the suspect who is active duty Navy, continued to be belligerent, repeatedly asking, “This is how you do the Military?” & “What? So now I’m some kind of —— terrorist? I blow —— up?” 

The officer asked the suspect how he thought he Navy would feel about his actions, and he replied, “—— the Navy!! I don’t give a ——- about the Navy!!”

The suspect was booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.  Additional charges of DUI, Reckless Driving, Hit & Run & Trespass are being requested.
