Police said they received a call from the older man about a restraining order violation but when they showed up at about 3:30 p.m. and attempted to arrest the man’s son, the father intervened. He allegedly punched an officer and ripped the badge off an officer’s shirt.

The 26-year-old man was arrested for violating a restraining order and released on bail. The 51-year-old man remained in custody this morning and was being held without bail for assaulting a police officer.
