RACINE — It reportedly took six officers to subdue a belligerently intoxicated Racine man early Sunday in Downtown. He faces several charges related to the incident.
Anthony Jardina, 20, of the 3000 block of Rosalind Avenue, is charged with criminal damage to property, obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct and misdemeanor bail jumping.
According to the criminal complaint:
At about 2 a.m., Jardina reportedly broke beer bottles and hit parked cars in the area of Main and Fifth streets. He then lifted a city garbage container at 536 Main St. and threw it on the ground, spilling garbage on the sidewalk and causing damage to the container.
Metro Security, a private security firm, detained Jardina at the intersection of Sixth Street and Wisconsin Avenue, as its officers reported he was acting paranoid, belligerent and was talking to himself.
As Racine Police Department officers arrived and performed a records check, Jardina reportedly became combative with officers and began to scream and kick his legs.
After Jardina calmed down and was placed under arrest, he again allegedly started to fight officers in an attempt to break free from restraint.
It reportedly took six officers to subdue Jardina, due to his strength. Officers reported that they could smell a strong odor of intoxicants coming from his breath.
Jardina was taken to the Ascension All Saints Hospital emergency room to be treated because of his erratic behavior. As he continued to act violently, Jardina was handcuffed to the bed rails for the safety of the nurses. Police had to continue to physically restrain Jardina, as he screamed and attempted to chew at the handcuffs and bed rails in efforts to free himself.
Jardina remained in custody as of 2 p.m. Monday.
Jardina has a pending misdemeanor case in Racine County for possession of marijuana and obstruction. He was released on June 8 on a $1,000 cash bond, with the condition that he would commit no new crime.
