CEW Deployment - 3200 Block Maxwell Street

A 26-year-old man is facing charges after an incident in which officers were required to deploy a conducted energy weapon (CEW) early this morning.

Just after 8:00 a.m., December 18, 2016, Police responded to a domestic dispute in the 3200 block of Maxwell Street. After concluding the investigation into the dispute, residents asked police to remove a male in the basement that was no longer welcome in their home. The suspect failed to comply with the officer's orders, refused to leave the home, and became physically assaultive towards the officer. The officer deployed his CEW and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

The suspect was checked by M.D. Ambulance at the scene and it was determined no further medical assistance was required.

The officer received minor injuries during the altercation.

This incident will be reviewed in accordance to policy.

The 26-year-old man is facing charges of Assaulting a Police Officer and will be seen by a Justice of the Peace later this evening.
