A Masury man kicked a Brookfield firefighter in the face and also kicked and fought with a Brookfield policeman after assaulting a woman Jan. 17 at home, Brookfield police said.
Codey N. Bourgeois, 26, of 8159 Lorain St., is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 21 on two felony accounts of assault, and misdemeanor charges of assault, possession of drug abuse instruments, criminal damaging and resisting arrest.
Police said they found suspected methamphetamine on Bourgeois, and additional charges will be filed if lab tests confirm the substance is meth, police said.
Police said they were called at 7:43 a.m. to the Lorain Street apartment building where Bourgeois lives because a man and a woman were heard screaming and the woman had mentioned a stabbing, police said.
Police Sgt. Cody Dean kicked in Bourgeois’ locked apartment door and found Bourgeois sitting on the kitchen floor pulling the hair of a 27-year-old Sharon woman, who was laying on her back.
Bourgeois let go of the woman’s hair and she slid away from him, police said. She was gasping for breath, police said.
Dean could see large kitchen knives on the floor near Bourgeois, and tried to get Bourgeois to move away from them, police said.
Bourgeois kicked Dean and swung what appeared to be a curtain rod and a wooden chair at Dean, police said.
Dean overturned a table to get to Bourgeois and dragged him to a carpeted area so they would not be on the wet kitchen floor, police said.
Bourgeois kicked Dean again, and Dean was able to get on top of him to secure his legs, police said. However, Bourgeois would not settle down, and three Taser stuns had no effect on him, police said.
Sharon police arrived and helped secure Bourgeois, police said.
A bag of suspected meth was found in Bourgeois’ pants pocket, police said.
The woman had cuts on her stomach and foot, and scrapes on her arms, police said. She said she had been eating mushrooms with Bourgeois and he had smoke meth, police said. When she tried to leave, he wouldn’t let her, police said.
Bourgeois kicked Brookfield Fire Capt. James Williamson in the face, breaking his glasses and giving him a headache, when Williamson tried to sedate him, police said.
Dean suffered minor injuries to his knees and hand, police said.
The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment. When police tried to interview her, “She was still under the influence and was unable to provide any sort of useful statement,” police said.
Bourgeois was taken to another hospital for a mental health evaluation, police said. Bourgeois kicked and swung at medical staff and had to be sedated again, police said.
Hubbard city and township police assisted.
