STRUTHERS Officers hurt during arrest of 3 males



Published: Wed, January 2, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



Police said two officers were struck several times.

STRUTHERS -- A traffic stop escalated into an altercation between police and some Fourth Street residents, leaving at least two officers injured.

Police said they made a stop near 3955 Fourth St. around 9:37 p.m. Monday after observing a vehicle operating without an illuminated rear license plate.

Officers said they saw a man in front of the Fourth Street home push another person while police approached the vehicle. Police said one of the men, a 41-year-old living at the home, shouted that police had stopped his relative. The man then began yelling profanity, police said.

Officers called for backup after others began running from the home. Police said a 26-year-old Struthers man, also living in the home, swore at the police and ran inside.

Warnings given: After numerous warnings, police said, they attempted to arrest the younger man but were blocked by a 15-year-old who told police they couldn't take his brother.

After placing the juvenile and the 41-year-old under arrest, police attempted to arrest the 26-year-old, who put up a fight.

Police said two officers were struck several times, and one was head-butted even after the man was placed in handcuffs.

Police said about 20 relatives of the suspects were in the home taunting the officers.

Officer Daniel Mamula Jr. was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center for a bruised left hand and wrist. He also had injured ribs. Officer Dan Lamping suffered injuries to his face.

The two adults were to appear in Struthers Municipal Court this morning. The juvenile was issued a disorderly conduct citation.
