Wareham PD/Assault Arrest
Wareham Police were called early Sunday for a report of a disturbance in Onset.
Officers found 29 year old Joel Michelsen of Onset walking down the street with a friend, waving his arms around aggressively and yelling obscenities.
When approached by police, Michelsen became even more aggressive and officers struggled to take him into custody. He was finally handcuffed, but as he was being put into the police cruiser, he tried to break free and kicked one of the officers.
He continued to be unruly and hostile at the police station.
Michelsen was charged with assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest.
He was arraigned in Wareham District Court on Monday.
