At approximately 7:23 p.m., officers were dispatched to a Gephart Drive residence for a trespassing complaint.  Officers arrived and located the resident along with Paul William Thomas Goetz inside the residence.  The home owner told Goetz to leave the residence in the presence of the officer but Goetz refused. The officer placed Goetz under arrest and attempted to walk him to a transport unit.  Goetz started to yell and refused to cooperate with officers.  Officers were able to get Goetz into the transport unit and he was transported to Police Headquarters for processing. Officers arrived at Headquarters where Goetz continued to resist officers and refused to cooperate.  Goetz was processed and transported to District Court for a hearing.  At the conclusion of the hearing Goetz was held without bond.

He was placed under arrest.  Both Hamilton and Jewell were taken before a District Court Commissioner.  Hamilton was held on a $2,000.00 bond and Jewell was released pending trial in District Court.
