On 03/31/17 at approximately 6:15pm, Officers were dispatched to a residence on South Main Street for a reported dispute. Officers were then informed that a male (later identified as Jonathan Holway) had left the residence and had broken a window with a cinder block. While responding, an Officer located Holway walking on South Main Street. Holway advanced towards the officer while brandishing a sword. Holway did not initially comply with commands to drop the sword, however did eventually relinquish the weapon. Holway then actively resisted efforts to take him into custody, and spit bodily fluids at officers. Once he was placed in custody, he kicked a window and door causing damage to a police vehicle.
