Elizabethtown authorities arrested a man over the weekend after he allegedly threatened other, as well as kicked an officer.
According to arrest citations, a call came through to Elizabethtown Police, but the problem was unknown, as the caller hung up. Dispatch advised that a man could be heard yelling in the background upon callback. When officers arrived, a man pointed out that another man, later found to be Chase Nettles, was shouting in the street while allegedly holding a gun. Nettles was confronted, and he began to approach the police car in a confrontational manner. Nettles was placed in handcuffs, struggling against the arrest the entire time. When placed in the cruiser, Nettles retaliated violently, allegedly kicking an officer in the head and chest. A hobble was placed around his ankles to prevent further outbursts, however Nettles repeatedly threatened the wellbeing of officers while being transported to the detention center.
Nettles is charged with assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and menacing.
