Jamestown man injures officers during arrest

JAMESTOWN – A 20-year-old man accused of causing minor injuries to two Jamestown police officers and a Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputies who confronted him while he was allegedly walking in the street on W.4th near Jefferson Street early Wednesday was being held without bail.

Joseph DeJesus, a Center Street resident, initially thought to need hospitalization after he was spotted allegedly acting strangely in the middle of the roadway about 1:30 a.m. became combative with the officers as he was put into a patrol car. After he began kicking the doors of the patrol car, damaging one of them he was charged with second-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. He remained jailed without bail pending further court proceedings
