Officers attempted to escort a male subject/suspect, who appeared intoxicated, from the last revenue train of the evening. The suspect, however, refused to readily comply with the officers as they continued to attempt to reason with him. The suspect eventually stepped out of the train, but then refused to leave the station which was closing for the evening. Shortly thereafter, the officers placed the suspect under arrest for trespassing and public intoxication. While being escorted to a patrol car, however, the suspect became physically resistive and officers used physical force to overcome his resistance. On reaching the patrol car, the suspect further resisted the officers’ efforts to place him in its rear seat, but the officers were able to safely place him in the seat. A short time later, the suspect began kicking one of the car’s rear (caged) windows and managed to slip out of his handcuffs. An assisting officer then arrived with the WRAP restraint device, and a sergeant arrived a short time later. Together, the sergeant and the officers managed to re-handcuff the suspect, but he physically resisted being placed in the WRAP. Police personnel were finally able to safely place the suspect in the restraint, and he was then booked into the county jail for public intoxication, trespassing and resisting arrest. No police personnel were injured. The suspect complained of wrist pain at the jail, where he was provided medical attention. A sergeant responded to perform the use of force investigation.
