March 11th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

On Thursday, March 11 at approximately 11:30 am, officers from the Cumberland Police Department responded to the parking lot of a business in South Cumberland for a report of a disturbance.  When the first officer arrived on scene, they observed Tyrone Oliver and Jacob Haines standing outside arguing and screaming at each other. The officer told them both numerous times to lower their voices. A large group of people in the area were all standing outside watching the disturbance.  The officer had to physically step in between Oliver and Haines to get them away from one another but they continued to argue with each other.  Oliver was placed under arrest and placed into a police cruiser.  While the officer was dealing with Oliver, Haines got into his vehicle.  The officer ordered Haines out of the vehicle and advised him that he was under arrest.  Haines refused to listen to the officer.  Additional officers arrived on scene to assist.  While attempting to get Haines to comply, he threatened to run over the officers and revved his vehicle’s engine.  Haines had to be removed from the vehicle by officers.  During this time, Haines struggled with officers and resisted arrest.
