NEW ALBANY —
An officer then told Price that he needed to speak with him, to which Price replied, “no,” and stepped inside his home.
“I grabbed the sleeve of Price, and he slammed the door into my arm and foot which were in the doorway,” the officer reported.
With a foot wedged in the doorway, the officer told Price to open the door, but he continued to push it shut and caused the bottom of the door to break, police reported.
Price then exited the home and was taken into custody in the front yard after a brief struggle.
Officers then returned to Price’s home and spoke with a woman there who allowed police to enter the residence. Police found in a bedroom of the home a clear, plastic bag containing what appeared to be marijuana.
Price was charged in court with maintaining a common nuisance and possession of marijuana, both class D felonies, and resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor.
A $25,000 court-cash bond was set during a hearing in Floyd County Superior Court No. 1.
Court records had not been updated with his next court appearance as of press time.
