New Castle DE Nov 2 2016 A Butler County man arrested for drunk driving faces more consequences for allegedly relieving himself on a police officer’s leg.
Julius Allen, 27, was pulled over by New Castle police around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the 1133 block of Booker Drive in the Harbor Heights housing project.
Officers reported that Allen had exposed himself, then urinated on the policeman’s boot. He continued urinating as the officer tried to arrest him. The officer forced him to the ground face-down. As he tried to arrest him, Allen resisted and tried to pull away, the officer reported. The officer had to forcibly pick Allen up and force him to the patrol car, the report said.
Allen continued to resist the police at the hospital and had to be carried into a hospital room, police said. The report said that Allen repeatedly threatened the officer while in the hospital room. He refused to cooperate with the police and the nurses and he refused a blood alcohol/chemical test.
En route to the police station, Allen continued threatening the officer and said he would assault him if he was uncuffed, the report said. He refused to walk at the police station and fell to the floor and had to be picked up and carried into the holding room and into a cell, the report said.
Police noted Allen allegedly has two previous drunk driving offenses out of Butler County, both from earlier this year.
Police had been called to Harbor Heights several times Saturday night for a disturbance by numerous people in the area, and the officer ordered the people to go home, according to the report.
While sitting inside a patrol car, the officer heard a loud bang from a car parked next to him, and he saw a car moving and going onto a high curb nearby. The officer recognized Allen as the driver and noted that he is on the Lawrence County Housing Authority’s no-trespass list. Harbor Heights is a housing authority property.
The officer learned that Allen’s license is suspended from a previous DUI conviction and that he smelled of alcohol, which prompted his attempt to arrest Allen, according to the police report.
Allen is charged with aggravated assault, indecent exposure, resisting arrest, simple assault, disorderly conduct, harassment, defiant trespass, driving under the influence while license is suspended, careless driving, reckless driving and two counts of driving under the influence.
He was arraigned by District Judge David B. Rishel, who confined him to the Lawrence County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.
