A local man is facing several charges after a disturbance over the weekend.
Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that at about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, officers were called to a fight at a
home in the 300 block of Smith Street. When the officers arrived, they allegedly saw Ty L. Tyndall, 36, acting in an “aggressive manner.” Police say that Tyndall refused to the follow the commands of the officers as they prepared to place him under arrest. Harris says that a struggle ensued, which led to officers using a Taser to take Tyndall into custody.
Officers later spoke with a witness who told them that Tyndall had punched a family member, assaulted a neighbor and threw a log at a vehicle, shattering the windshield.
Tyndall was arrested on preliminary charges of Resisting Law Enforcement, Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, and Disorderly Conduct.
