28-year-old Richard Meyers was arrested on Saturday night after fighting with officers who contacted him in reference to a disorderly conduct complaint.  At approximately 11:41PM officers responded to the 200 Building on Isabelle Isle for a report of a male screaming and yelling outside.  When officers arrived, they observed Meyers as the subject who was causing the disturbance.  When officers contacted Meyers refused to speak to officers about the incident, but continued to act disorderly.

When an officer attempted to take Meyers into custody, he resisted, causing himself and the officer to fall to the ground where Meyers continued to violently resist until officers could successfully handcuff him.  A Dover officer did sustain injuries to his hands as a result but was not treated.  

Meyers was released on an O.R. Bond on the following offenses:
-Disorderly Conduct
