A Yarmouth Police Officer was injured during the arrest of a violent, intoxicated man Friday night.
Police were notified at approximately 8 o’clock of a disturbance taking place at a residence located at 2 Constance Avenue in West Yarmouth.
Arriving officers observed a man throwing items around the home; a young boy emerged from the backyard and stated he called police.
Police entered the home and found a male and female occupant; as officers attempted to speak with them, the man became irate and made threats towards the officers.
Police say he then began to attack one of the officers. A Taser was deployed twice to stop him; he was placed into handcuffs.
33-year-old Cajun Burdick was arrested and charged with Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct, Assault and Battery causing Serious Injury, Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, Intimidating of a Government Witness, and Obstruction of Justice.
One officer sustained a shoulder injury and is unable to work while facing potential surgery.
