When the officer made contact with Linaweaver and advised him he was under arrest Linaweaver began to fight and resist the officer.  During the struggle, Linaweaver attempted to disarm the officer and removed several items from the Officer’s belt and uniform, at one point cutting the officers face.  Officers from MSP, ACSO and CPD responded and assisted in making the arrest.  Linaweaver was treated at WMHS where he began to yell and disrupt normal operations and at one point kicked over a computer.  Once discharged he was transported to CPD.
