A Perrysburg man is serving a 90-day sentence in the Wood County jail after authorities say he swore at them and became “combative” when they tried to arrest him last week for not paying child support, according to a police report released today.
Bradley W. Rawlings, 54, 28891 Starbright Blvd., appeared in court this morning on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, aggravated menacing, and drug abuse.
On Saturday, Perrysburg Township police went to the Mr. Rawlings residence on a warrant for his arrest in Lucas County.
Officers claim they found Mr. Rawlings sitting on his bed in the basement with marijuana and rolling papers on a table in plain view, the police report said.
Mr. Rawlings “became belligerent and verbally abusive on the ride to the Lucas County jail,” at Oregon and Ayers roads, the report states.
He swore at Perrysburg Township Officer Joe Ball, III,, threatening to fight the officer once “we get where we’re going and you take these handcuffs off,” he reportedly told police.
Before he could be booked at the jail, Mr. Rawlings — who is 165 pounds and 5 feet, 10 inches tall — threw his weight against the officer and pulled out of his grasp, which required the jail deputies’ help, Officer Ball wrote in the report.
