He began to pace back and forth in the living room and kitchen causing the officers to ask the man if he would stay still and speak with them. He refused but walked toward one of the officers and tried to grab his arm. The officers apprehended the man, who tried to get away from them by kicking and refusing to walk or stand. While the officers were carrying him to their patrol unit, the man kicked one of the officers in the crotch. The man was taken to the Faulkner County Detention Center for processing.
