A man was arrested on numerous charges after he first called the police for assistance, then allegedly refused to let them help.
According to the report by Dormont police, Austin Deaver, 27, of Dormont called police at 12:15 a.m. on Jan. 1 and reported that his girlfriend was unconscious at his apartment in the 3200 block of West Liberty Avenue and needed help.
Police said when they arrived at the apartment, they found a bong-type device. At that point, according to the police report, Deaver told the police to leave the apartment and attempted to physically stop the police from getting to the woman.
Deaver was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, possession of drug paraphernalia, and obstructing administration of law enforcement. He was held at the Dormont police station, and was later released on bond.
