A Plymouth man was arrested Monday night, July 8th after city police responded to two different 911 calls.

Officers were unable to locate the subject who was identified as 26-year-old Blake A. Brown of Jackson Heights Road in Plymouth. 

At approximately 11 pm, Plymouth Police responded for a second call to the Berkley Street trailer park for Blake Brown who was violating a protection order and beating on an exterior door. 

Officers responded to the second 911 call and found Brown hiding behind a shed on the property.   He was instructed to turn around and place his hands behind his back, however refused to comply.  When the officer went to place Brown into handcuffs, he began to resist and batter the officer.  During the struggle, Brown suffered minor injuries before being taken into custody.
