WESTOVER — A Granville man is accused of roughly handling his two children and fighting police officers.
Jeffery Brian Bane, 39, was arrested Saturday, Sept. 6, and charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer and battery on an officer.
According to criminal complaints: Westover Police Officer Colin Sheridan went to Holland Avenue in response to a report of someone abusing children. Officers later encountered Bane outside Frank’s Place.
Bane had two infant children with him, which he said were his. According to police, he appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, handled the children roughly and became agitated as officers spoke with him about the children.
“The children appeared to be overheated, and when asked about provisions that he had with him for the children, Bane struck the stroller violently with his hand, pushing it forward abruptly while his infant son was still seated inside,” the complaint said.
When officers tried to restrain Bane, he began to fight officers, kicking one and trying to spit on others, according to the report.
