The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Ark City man Sunday after he allegedly battered an Ark City officer and also engaged in disorderly conduct.

Issa Ahmed Moder Nemr, 38, was arrested on suspicion of one misdemeanor count each of battery of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. He was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $3,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Nemr remained in custody at the time of this release.

Officers were dispatched around 5 p.m. Sunday to MeadowWalk Apartments, at 925 W. Skyline Road, for a report of trespassing.

When they arrived, they made contact with deputies from the Cowley County Sheriff’s Office who already were on scene and learned that Nemr was apparently very intoxicated.

The manager of MeadowWalk Apartments wanted Nemr removed from the premises because Nemr was being very loud and disruptive. He then refused to follow commands officers were giving him.

Nemr made several aggressive movements toward officers and was taken into custody for disorderly conduct. He was escorted to an Arkansas City Police Department patrol vehicle for transport.

However, Nemr then head-butted one of the Arkansas City officers in the face. He subsequently was brought back under control and placed into a Cowley County Sheriff’s patrol truck for transport.

The Arkansas City police officer sustained only minor injuries and did not require medical treatment.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
