Man yells as cop
A Gary man who stood in a group shouting at Cpl. John Artibey as he completed a traffic stop in Glen Park on Wednesday night was arrested when he refused to be quiet.
Albert Walton, 39, was charged with disorderly conduct.
Cpl. John Artibey was near 46th Avenue and Massachusetts Street about 6:20 p.m. when he stopped a car and eventually arrested the driver who was wanted on a warrant.
Several people stood nearby, and as Artibey began to drive away, they yelled at him and called him names. He stopped and approached the group and everyone became quiet except Walton, the arrest report states.
Trucker threatens to beat up cop
A truck driver from Fontana, Calif., was arrested Tuesday and charged with intimidation after he argued and allegedly threatened Patrolman Anthony Boleware at the Truckstops of America where Boleware was working his second job.
Robert R. DeSoto, 50, was drying his laundry on bricks outside the truck stop at 25th Avenue and Burr Street.
He told Boleware the dryer was broken and he was going to leave his clothes there to dry, telling the officer, “You could not enforce the law on private property,” the probable cause affidavit states.
Boleware insisted the man move his clothes, but DeSoto said, “I will kick your ass without that badge” and was very agitated and aggressive, court records state.
Boleware arrested DeSoto, who is charged with a felony.
Man wants to see child at 1:30 a.m.
Demanding to see his 5-month-old son at 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Jimmy L. Jackson, 20, of 4021 Grant St., forced his way into the child’s mother’s apartment where he grabbed the infant, police said.
Jackson has been charged with residential entry, domestic battery and intimidation.
The victim told Detective Cpl. Roberto Figueroa she heard noises outside her Glen Park apartment and found her storm door broken and Jackson outside. He forced his way inside and ran to the baby’s room after choking her and striking her face.
During the argument, he gave the child to the woman, but continued to hit her, the probable cause affidavit states.
