A man was arrested for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct at a party on East Park Place early Sunday morning, according to Newark police spokesman MCpl. Gerald Bryda.
At 12:21 a.m., officers responded to a residence at the 100 block of East Park Place after receiving a report of loud music and partying. They entered the home and informed a resident that the scene violates the city's noise ordinance, Bryda said.
While police looked for the other residents, they were confronted by a 26-year-old man. The officers instructed the man to leave the area. The man continued to act aggressively toward the officers and began screaming and yelling profanity at them without provocation, Bryda said.
The officers moved to place the man under custody for disorderly conduct when he began fighting with the officers, who then placed him under arrest and escorted him into the patrol car.
While in the car, the man began to kick and slam his head against the windows and had to be further restrained. After transporting him to the police station, officers discovered he was wanted for other minor crimes, Bryda said.
Two residents of the home were issued summonses for a noise violation.
