A Yarmouth Police officer was injured Friday night while arresting an intoxicated man who became violent.
The unidentified officer suffered a shoulder injury and is unable to work while he faces potential surgery on that shoulder.
Yarmouth officers were called to 2 Constance Ave in West Yarmouth around 8 p.m. on Friday after receiving a 9-1-1 call about an intoxicated man who was throwing objects around the house.
When confronted by the officers, he became violent, attacking one of the officers. The officers had to taser the man twice before he stopped his attack. He was then placed in handcuffs and placed under arrest.
Cajun Burdick, 35, was charged with Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct, Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, Assault and Battery Causing Serious Injury, Intimidating a Witness, and Obstruction of Justice.
Bail was set at $3,040.00 and Burdick was held in Yarmouth Police Custody and taken to the Barnstable District Court for arraignment Monday.
