Drunk hotel guest threatens officer


BellefontainePolice Patch

Christopher A. Rosenberg, 28, of Glasford, Ill., was charged Sunday with aggravated menacing, public intoxication and persistent disorderly conduct.

Around 1:45 a.m., officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department were called to Comfort Inn, 260 Northview Drive, regarding an intoxicated man who had injured one of his feet.

He reportedly kicked a concrete curb after stumbling over it and was angry and uncooperative with officers and paramedics with the Bellefontaine Fire and EMS Department. He kicked and punched a sitting bench while officers and medics were offering him treatment for his injuries.

Rosenberg would not calm down and continued to be aggressive toward officers and medics.

He was arrested and placed in hobble restraints to prevent him from kicking windows in the police cruiser.

While en route to the Logan County Jail, he repeatedly threatened to kill the officer.

Jail staff placed the defendant in a restraint chair soon after his arrival.
