A 22-year-old man was arrested after allegedly impeding vehicular and pedestrian traffic on East Main Street Saturday night, according to Newark police spokesman MCpl. Gerald Bryda.
At approximately 11:30 p.m., a Newark police officer was driving down East Main Street when he saw the man seated in a chair in the middle of the crosswalk near the intersection of Center Street and Main Street, Bryda said.
The officer told the man to move along, and the man complied. However, when the officer began to drive away, the man moved back into the middle of the road and sat down in the chair again, Bryda said.
The officer saw him return and then parked his car, approached the man and arrested him.
The man was charged with disorderly conduct by obstructing vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
