Don’t let the cops do their job, and you can get a free tour of the police station. Five people are arrested Sunday after officers tried to arrest a burglary suspect. Jefferson City police went to a house on Monroe Street Sunday afternoon for a possible burglary in progress.
They tried to arrest Cameron Jackson-Bey, 21, when he became combative. As Jackson-Bey was being arrested, four others – two men and two women – confronted and threatened the officers. Captain Doug Shoemaker says officers had to use pepper spray to subdue the crowd before anyone got hurt.
Shoemaker says some people at the scene who obeyed police orders did not get sprayed. The four who did were all taken into custody for interfering with an arrest and failure to obey a law officer.
