MENTOR, Ohio– A man was arrested, accused of trying to assault Mentor police officers.

Police said around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, an officer saw a man, identified as Daniel Cintron, 30, walking on Heisley Road; they said he appeared to be intoxicated because he was staggering into the lanes of the road.

Cintron reportedly ignored the officer when he tried to talk to him and then police said he swung a fist at the officer when he was taken out of the road.

The officer was not injured.

But, police said Cintron continued to fight after he was taken into custody; he’s accused of kicking another officer in the shin and threatening the officers several times.

He was charged with persistent disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.

    He continued to fight after taken into custody? I hearken back to the 60s and 70s when police didn’t have high tech gizmos like stun guns and pepper spray. They had a good old fashion billy club and were allowed to use it at will. A couple of cracks on the knee cap and the fighting was over. The good old days..
