On April 17 Carl Myrland was arrested and charged with Obstructing a Peace Officer or Other Public Servant and Resisting Arrest.
Sidney Police and Richland County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a noise complaint at 907 3rd St. NW arriving on scene at 11:55 pm. Sidney Police Chief Mark Kraft stated that Myrland repeatedly refused to identify himself. Myrland was then told he was under arrest for obstruction. Myrland physically resisted and had to be taken into custody by force.
After an internal review, it was determined the officers actions were justified and their conduct was within department policy procedure.
Myrland claims to have suffered physical trauma from the incident. “They kneed me in the ribs seven times,” he stated. Myrland also says he will need surgery on his pancreas and a spot behind his ribs.
Myrland will appear in court May 4 regarding his charges.
