MARTIN — Quinton O. Randle, a 20-year-old Martin man, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest by Martin Police Department and aggravated assault by the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department Sunday morning at Dale’s Bar at 105 Church Street after an altercation.
According to a Martin Police Department incident report, Randle was observed being disorderly on the sidewalk in front of Cadillac’s bar on Church Street. Randle walked off from Martin Police officers John Cross and Patrick Dilday cursing and creating a public nuisance. Randle walked into Dale’s Bar down the street from Cadillac’s and was escorted outside by Cross and Dilday.
The police report states that once outside, Randle actively resisted arrest and, after a lengthy struggle with several law enforcement officers, he was taken into custody.
Cross suffered minor injuries in the struggle, while Weakley County Sheriff’s Deputy Byron Chandler broke his right clavicle.
Dilday deployed his taser and Randle was taken into custody.
Randle has since been released from the Weakley County Detention Center on a $2,500 bond.
