Connecticut man arrested in Northampton after causing disturbance at night club


Northampton police arrested a Connecticut man Thursday night after he allegedly caused a disturbance at the Pearl Street Night Club. 

Northampton Police Chief Jody Kasper said officers were called to the night club around 11:45 p.m. Thursday for a report of an intoxicated man causing a disturbance. 

When an officer arrived, she observed the man yelling at a group of Pearl Street Night Club employees. He then directed his obscenities at the officer, said Chief Kasper. 

Officers identified the man as a 34-year-old from Enfield, Connecticut, who had an active warrant out of Chicopee District Court. 

Police told the man he was being arrested for the warrant. He then allegedly tried to run from officers, but they caught up to him and took him to the ground. Four officers worked to take the man into custody, but he was allegedly uncooperative and fought with them. He allegedly kicked an officer in the legs and stomach multiple times, and kicked another officer in the knee. 

He was taken into custody and addition to the warrant, he was charged with disorderly conduct, two counts of assault and battery on a police officer, and resisting arrest. 

One of the officers was treated and released from Cooley Dickinson Hospital due to his knee injury.
