Darren Doyle, story:
A Bloomfield, KY man is now facing charges after a felony arrest in an extended altercation with deputies during an incident in Cub Run yesterday.
Deputies responded to a complaint where a homeowner on Logsdon Road near the Hart County line said there was a suspicious man carrying a bag who had been walking up and down the road then began wrestling with what appeared to be himself as he rolled around in the caller's yard. Neighbors said they'd recently had trouble keeping the unknown man off their properties and were afraid.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office said that upon arrival, one of the deputies simply asked the man for his name but the man cursed them out while refusing to give them any information or cooperation.
Deputies said that when they tried to further investigate, a fight ensued and the man wouldn't follow any orders or instructions. Officials said that Michael Chesser, (40) Bloomfield, KY, was eventually subdued and handcuffed, but as deputies brought him to his feet he attempted to run away from the officers. He was quickly caught and placed in leg irons.
Chesser was found to have an outstanding disorderly conduct warrant out of Hardin County that officials said was for an incident almost identical to what they'd just experienced. They also reported that Chesser was suspected to have been under the influence of a controlled substance.
Chesser was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct 2nd degree, Resisting Arrest, and Assault 3rd Degree-Police or Probation Officer. He was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail.
