Three cited in scene on Main Street

Two men and a woman were cited for open containers and misdemeanor obstruction of justice following a weekend incident on Main Street in downtown Stillwater.

Stillwater Police officers were called to a Main Street restaurant for a reported fight around 11:30 p.m. Saturday. The individuals had apparently entered the restaurant, which was closed for a private wedding reception, got into an argument with a guest and stole two beers.

A police report said police at the scene asked the two men to stop. One of the men dropped his beer and walked toward officers while the second man kept walking, the report said. After officers stopped the two men and placed one of men in handcuffs, the woman began yelling at officers, telling them they couldn’t arrest the man and demanding an explanation.

The report said officers told the woman to stop yelling, not interfere and walk away. When she refused and kept following officers, she was taken into custody, but not before refusing to comply with officers orders to get down on the ground.

The woman was cited for misdemeanor obstruction of justice.

Man faces domestic assault charges

A Lakeland man faces possible domestic assault charges after a weekend incident at a Stillwater hotel.

Managers of a local hotel called Stillwater Police officers after a woman told them she had been beaten by her ex-boyfriend. The victim had left the scene when officers arrived but was later found behind a nearby retail store.

The victim told officers that her ex-boyfriend, identified in police reports as Vaughn Isker, had allegedly grabbed her around the neck and slammed the back of her head to the floor during a fight in their hotel room. The woman didn’t report swelling or bumps on the back of her head.

A police reports added that the pair have a long history of assault and other police contacts. An order for protection had been cancelled for the pair back in February 2012.

Police forwarded the information to the City Attorney for charging.
