On Feb 28th at 4:15 AM, officers responded to a SE Minot business for a burglary alarm call. Once officers arrived, they witnessed a male in a black jacket walking away from the business. As officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, who was later identified as Brent CASTLEMAN, he refused to stop and tried to walk away. CASTLEMAN refused several additional commands and begin to resist officers as they attempted to detain him. As CASTLEMAN continued to resist officers, he kicked and struck one of the officers causing pain. He was eventually taken into custody and placed under arrest for Disobeying a Movement Control Order (Class B Misdemeanor), Preventing Arrest (Class C Felony), Assault on a Peace Officer (Class C Felony), and Criminal Trespass (Class C Felony). Castleman was transported to the Ward County Jail. The officer is expected to recover from the injury.
