Head Butt Damages Police Vehicle

(La Porte, IN) - It wasn’t the type of head banging you’d see at a concert.  Instead, this one damaged a police vehicle.  36 year old Ryan Faatuai of La Porte is charged with criminal mischief and other counts. 


According to La Porte County Police, a sheriff’s deputy approached the man walking in the middle of the street on Jefferson Avenue near U.S 35 before sunrise over the weekend.  Police said his behavior was odd and the words he spoke did not make any sense.  Faatuai was about to be placed in handcuffs when he allegedly slammed his head against the hood of a police vehicle.  Police said the impact was hard enough to leave a dent.


Faatuai was also charged with resisting law enforcement and possession of a syringe.
