A Wesleyan University student was arrested early Saturday morning after pushing public safety staff and trying to bite and kick police, authorities said.
According to police, Alexander Ward Musicant, 18, of Middletown, was arrested after police received a report that he was “intoxicated and out of control” at 18 Foss Hill Drive just after midnight Aug. 31.
The caller who reported Musicant told police he was “swinging his arms and pushing Wesleyan Public Safety staff,” according to police. Officers arrived to find Musicant face down the grass with a public safety officer sitting on his back and holding his head down.
Police said Musicant tried to bite and kick the officers who handcuffed him.
According to authorities, Musicant told police, “You will all remember me. I’ll be famous and you will pay for this.”
He refused to answer questions about whether or not he had been drinking, but police said he smelled like alcohol and was behaving in a way that indicated he was under the influence.
Musicant was transported to Middlesex Hospital for an examination. He was then issued a misdemeanor summons for interfering with an officer and second-degree breach of peace.
He was released on a promise to appear and is due in court at 9 a.m. on Sept. 13.
