DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Three people were arrested while Dayton Police were patrolling the Oregon District overnight.
Police were in the area of East Fifth Street Saturday around 1:45 a.m. when they were first flagged down by the bar manager at Ned Peppers. He told police that bar staff asked a man who was highly intoxicated to leave the bar several times but he refused. When officers arrived, the man ran across the street towards Blind Bob’s.
Police caught up to him. After running his information, officers found he had been trespassed from Ned Peppers before for fighting. Terrell Gooden, 40, was arrested on criminal trespassing charges.
A short time later, police responded to the corner of Wayne Avenue and East Fifth Street where they said a man was cursing and causing a disturbance. They said he was yelling expletives at the police.Officials warned him to stop, but they said he refused. Police said patrons in the area were alarmed by the man’s behavior.
Police took Timothy McNair, 24, into custody on charges of disorderly conduct.
As officers were arresting McNair, another man was reportedly trying to interfere with police, yelling that McNair had freedom of speech. The man followed officers to the cruiser, but police told him to stay back. Police said they had to push him back and he became combative, taking swings at officers.
Lavall Glasper, 24, was arrested on charges of assault, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest.
All three men were booked into the Montgomery County Jail. They are expected to appear in court Monday.
