On 11.28.2017 Milford Police arrested a 19 year old Milford man following an incident of disorderly behavior in the lobby of the department. On 11.28.2017 at approximately 6:41 pm, Djerryson Charles, 19 of Milford, came in the lobby of the Milford Police Department on Northeast Front Street (SR 14) and began to bang on the protective glass that separates communications personnel and those who are in the lobby area. This alarmed communications personnel on duty at the time and officers were notified. Mr. Charles repeatedly demanded to speak with an officer who was not working at the time and failed to allow other officers assist him. Mr. Charles continued to yell loudly as well as use profanity and eventually was asked to leave the department. Mr. Charles was repeatedly warned he would be arrested if he failed to leave and he failed to comply with officers requests. As officers eventually attempted to take Mr. Charles into custody he struggled with them to prevent his arrest. After a struggle and the use of a Taser, officers eventually were able to take Mr. Charles into custody. Mr. Charles has been charged with Resisting Arrest With Force Or Violence, Disorderly Conduct by Fighting or Violent Tumultuous or Threatening Behavior, and Criminal Trespass Third Degree.
