Dartmouth Police: Resident Assaulted Officers During Traffic Stop
A Dartmouth man faces charges after a vehicle stop in the town over the weekend.
Dartmouth Police say at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, police conducted a motor vehicle stop on Cross Road. While officers spoke with the driver, he allegedly became "argumentative and aggressive towards officers."
Given his demeanor, officers tried to place the man, 62-year-old Daniell Gill of Dartmouth, into custody. Police say Gill became combative and physically assaulted officers.
Gill was eventually restrained and charged with assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and threats to commit a crime.
Nobody was injured during the incident.
