South Charleston police said a St. Albans man faces multiple charges after he refused to have his fingerprints or photo taken while he was being booked on charges and then threatened an officer.
Jonathan Daniel Byrd, 33, allegedly grabbed a woman Wednesday by the throat at an apartment in South Charleston and pushed her back, causing some redness and swelling to her throat area, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
Byrd left the area and was stopped by a South Charleston police officer, who arrested him for driving on a revoked license for DUI, the complaint said. At the South Charleston Police Department, he allegedly refused to have his fingerprints or photo taken and told an officer to take off his gun and badge and meet him outside so he could beat him up, the complaint said.
Byrd was charged with domestic battery, failure to submit to booking, assault on an officer and driving while license revoked for DUI.
Byrd was lodged in South Central Regional Jail.
