Police accuse man of disorderly conduct

NEW CASTLE — A North Hill man has been arrested for allegedly causing a disturbance with a code enforcement officer, then the police.

New Castle police said Benjamin Frank Jones III, 33, of 720 Carlisle St. was yelling obscenities at a code enforcement officer from the porch of a Blaine Street house, then chased the officer’s vehicle as he drove away.

Police went to the house and said Jones yelled profanity at them, too. When he refused to calm down, they said, officers tried to arrest him but he attempted to go into the house. They said they had to wrestle with Jones to handcuff him.

He is charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was arraigned by District Judge Scott McGrath, who set bond at $1,000.

Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
