She also reported several electronic items were missing as well. Police noted there was no forced entry to the residence.
• Public intoxication at 235 Farris Rd. (Bears Den Pizza).
Officers were dispatched to Bears Den Pizza after a report of a fight. When police arrived, they found many people in the parking lot shouting and yelling at each other. Two black males not wearing shirts were yelling at a group of white males, who were yelling back.
Officers made contact with the victim, who stated that a man took a swing at a bouncer, and when he tried to break up the confrontation, he was struck in the left eye.
The manager stated they were trying to empty the establishment so they could close at about 3 a.m., but some still remained. When the employees began to become more forceful, the black males became agitated and aggressive.
The man accused of striking the victim said that the bouncer had called him a racial slur and tried to push him out the door while he was trying to find his disabled brother.
Officers tried to place the man under arrest, due to the level of intoxication and the actions witnessed, but he got in the back of his brother’s car and would not get out. Other officers arrived and removed him from the car, placing him under arrest for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
