Roosevelt. Ut.- On 4/22/23, Officer Harrison and other Officers responded to the liquor store to a report of a man wearing a blue jacket in the store, intoxicated and disrupting business, and harassing the customers.
The police spoke with the individual located just down from the liquor store. The male was identified as 46-year-old Roland Lee Kie, and he was having difficulty with his balance and maintaining the volume of his voice. It possibly looked like he urinated on himself.
The police tried to discuss options on what to do with him as his level of intoxication and behavior was a concern. Roland was placed under arrest for intoxication and disorderly conduct.
While restraining him in handcuffs, Roland became combative and resistant by pulling away and trying to drag the Officers to the ground.
Roland wrapped his legs around one of the Officer's legs and tried to control and restrict his movements while he continued to yell, scream, resist, and disregard their commands as he was placed into a patrol car.
Once at the Uintah Basin Medical Center, Roland continued to resist and be combative, charging the Officers by making movements toward the hospital staff. Roland had to be restrained to gain compliance to be medically cleared before he was taken to the Duchesne County Jail.
