WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - A Gaylordsville, Conn. man apologized for "trying to head butt" a police officer Friday morning after he reportedly lunged with his head aimed at an officer, repeatedly bashed his head against several doors, and threatened to sue the officers arresting him.
White Plains officers noticed Daniel Ruman, 22, get thrown out of the Black Bear Saloon on Mamaroneck Avenue around 2:40 a.m. Friday. According to police reports, Ruman wrestled with bouncers while trying to sneak back into the bar. He then gave up and broke several bar umbrellas while running north on Mamaroneck Avenue. Police estimate it would cost about $380 to replace the bars' furniture.
When officers tried to arrest him, Ruman swore at them. He flailed his arms and body "violently" while being escorted to the police car in handcuffs. Police tried to get him to calm down by resting him against the car trunk. He then began banging his head against the car. Once officers got Ruman in the car, police reports say he swiveled around and kicked an officer in the face twice.
On route to police headquarters, Ruman banged his head against the glass partition about eight times. According to arrest reports Ruman asked officers, "How do you like this? I am going to sue you."
Ruman also hit his head against two sets of doors at the police headquarters. When an officer held him back from slapping his head against a door, Ruman allegedly lunged with his head aimed at an officer. The officer dodged the head butt. Ruman was then handcuffed to a railing where he said, "I am sorry for trying to head butt the police officer," according to arrest reports.
Ruman was charged with one count of second-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault, which are both felonies. He was also charged with one count of resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.
