HARRINGTON, Del.- Harrington police say a 21-year-old man is behind bars after he got drunk and disorderly and then spit at and kicked officers trying to him into custody. 

Police said the incident happened shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday, at Caleb G. Grant's home in the 300 block of Calvin Street. 

Police said that while on patrol a Harrington officer and a Delaware State Police trooper responded to Grant’s address after a family member called police reporting that Grant was intoxicated and breaking items inside the house.

According to police, when they met with Grant inside the home, he was uncooperative and refused to listen to them. Police said that when the officer and trooper tried to take Grant into custody, he fought back and kicked the trooper in the leg.

After a brief struggle, Grant was taken into custody. Police said Grant also damaged property inside the residence.

Police said that while being taken to the Harrington Police Department for processing, Grant spit at the Harrington officer.

He was charged with resisting arrest with force or violence, two counts of offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and two counts of criminal mischief under $1,000. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $1,700 secured bond.

Neither of the officers sustained any injuries, police said.
