Livingston Police Department made arrests of unruly individuals in two separate incidents in the first days of June.
A man was charged with public intoxication, assault on police officers, and resisting arrest after an incident on Cullom Street on Saturday, June 1.
According to LPD, Officer Jon Smith was on patrol on Cullom Street at approximately 2:41 a.m. when he observed a male, later identified as Royce Ledbetter, in the street in his underwear, yelling and screaming.
Officer Connie Dillon also responded to assist in the call.
As the officers were attempting to determine what his issue was, Ledbetter allegedly began kicking and trying to punch Officer Smith.
Officer Smith and Officer Dillon then attempted to take Ledbetter into custody and Ledbetter allegedly punched and kicked Officer Dillon. Ledbetter was subdued by the officers and arrested on the aforementioned charges.
Then, around midnight Sunday, June 2, Officer Smith and Sgt. Jonathan Storie responded to a call from a juvenile who stated he was driving down Burgess Street when an unknown male tried to get into his vehicle and assault him, while he was driving down the street. The juvenile told police that he sped up to get away from the man and hit a street sign, causing damage to the sign and his vehicle, and that he then came to the police station.
Shortly afterward, Officer Smith located the individual, identified as John C. Camp, 36, of Ohio, who allegedly told the officers that he was the one who went after the driver of the truck because it had been speeding.
LPD officers reported that they determined Camp was intoxicated and they advised him that he was under arrest, and Camp reportedly did not understand why.
As officers attempted to place Camp into custody, he allegedly resisted arrest and had to be forcibly taken into custody.
Camp was charged with Assault, Burglary of an Auto, and Reckless Endangerment related to the incident with the juvenile, and he was additionally charged with Public Intoxication and with Resisting Arrest.
