Dresden man arrested after fleeing police

A 22 year-old Dresden man was arrested and subdued by police after a series of incidents Sunday evening.

Robert W. Valley of Blue Goose Road was charged with second degree obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, both misdemeanors and disorderly conduct/second degree harassment, a violation.

At approximately 10:20 p.m. on Sunday, police responded to a disturbance near the north end of the village. Upon arrival they encountered Valley in the middle of Main Street, shouting obscenities and threatening police. Valley then entered a local establishment, refusing orders from police that he was under arrest and fled the area on foot.

Police eventually caught up with Valley on Kirtland Street following a report of a disturbance involving the vandalism of a car at a nearby business.

Upon arrival, officers found Valley wrestling with another man. Police were able to subdue Valley using pepper spray and he was taken into custody without further incident.

Valley was arraigned in the Village of Granville Court and released to appear at a later date.

Additional charges are possible and police are asking anyone with damage to their vehicles or property which occurred between July 21 and 22 in the vicinity of Maple Street to call the station at 499-1316 to report the matter.

The case was handled by Whitehall Patrolman Jason Vandenburgh, with assistance from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and Fair Haven, Vt. Police.
