County police charged a 34-year-old Pasadena man with resisting arrest and two counts of battery of a police officer after he allegedly struggled with two officers investigating a domestic dispute Saturday night, police said yesterday.
James Kent Foresman of the 1900 block of Main Ave. also was charged with spousal assault on his wife, Stacey Anne Foresman, 22, who lives at the same address, police said.
Mrs. Foresman called police to the house about 10:30 p.m. Saturday and told officers her husband had thrown her around the bedroom and choked her, police said. She also told police she was afraid her husband would become more violent because he had been drinking, police said.
The officers on the scene found Mr. Foresman in the bedroom and told him to get dressed because he was under arrest, police said. The suspect allegedly refused, saying he wanted to see his wife's injuries and insisting that he wasn't going anywhere, police said.
He allegedly resisted police attempts to handcuff him and punched one of the officers in the mouth, police said. The officers used a chemical spray to subdue Mr. Foresman.
