A documented street gang member was arrested after Mesa police say the man caused a disturbance outside a Mesa motel and threatened officers late Saturday.
Chris Tobin-Cotrell was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, refusing to prove a truthful name when detained, aggravated assault on law enforcement, threatening and intimidating and participating or assisting in a criminal street gang in connection to the incident at Colonade Motel, 5440 E. Main St.
Shortly before 9 p.m., police responded to a report of a man causing a disturbance at the motel by banging on doors and making noise. After police arrived on the scene, Tobin-Cotrell was apprehended after he became aggressive, according to police.
As officers were placing Tobin-Cotrell inside the car, he tried to head butt one of the officers and tried to kick out a passenger window of the cruiser moments before officers put him in restraints and booked into jail.
