Man Arrested After Father Said He Had Been A Problem And Refused To Move Out

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

Police were called to a home on Dallas Lake Road when a man could not get his 29-year-old son to move out. When they arrived, the man said his son, Justin Broadwell, was passed out on the couch after taking some type of narcotic.

The man told police his son had been a problem and refused to leave. 

With the man's permission, police entered his home and attempted to wake his son. They asked him what his trouble was with his father.

However, at this point, police said the son became very upset.

They said when they tried to calm him down, he lunged at them. 

When an officer wrestled him back down on the couch, the son started kicking the officer in the stomach while throwing punches.

Officers said they tried over and over to calm him down and gave multiple verbal commands. 

After what police describe as an "extensive fight," the son was put under arrest.

Broadwell was charged with assault on police and resisting arrest. Bond was set at $4,000.
