Charles Kahoro-Beard, 25, of Bayonne, was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and obstructing a government function, according to Police Capt. Eric Amato.
He was taken into custody at at approximately 2:43 a.m. from the area of 812 Broadway, The Refinery Tavern, where officers responded after receiving a report of a fight.
Upon arrival, officers identified one of the combatants as Kahoro-Beard and attempted to conduct an investigation into the incident, but he refused to comply as he continued to walk away.
Kahoro-Beard eventually complied, “but immediately became irate, shouting obscenities at the officers as he disregarded their commands to cease his belligerent behavior,” Amato said.
Officers then informed Kahoro-Beard that he was being placed under arrest and as the officers attempted to handcuff him, he resisted arrest by tensing his arms and refusing to be handcuffed, police said.
