A Lake Havasu City man was arrested on Aug. 5 at the Lake Havasu City Municipal Court due to allegedly aggressive and disruptive behavior during and after a hearing for separate violations.
According to the Lake Havasu City Police Department, Travis Ramsey was asked by Judge M. Dunbar to stop talking twice prior to the start of his hearing. During his hearing, Ramsey was allegedly uncooperative, ignoring several of the judge’s requests to sit down, stop talking, and to surrender his cell phone after he was observed recording the proceedings.
Eventually Judge Dunbar stopped the proceeding due to Ramsey’s lack of cooperation, and issued a ruling that Ramsey was responsible for the violations. When Ramsey argued with the judge over the ruling Judge Dunbar ordered him removed from the courtroom.
Ramsey allegedly repeatedly attempted to pull away from the officers as they tried to escort him out. After several attempts to break free from officers, one of which resulted in knocking the officer’s Axon controller mount off of his shirt, the officers decided to place Ramsey under arrest.
Ramsey continued to attempt to free himself from the grasp of the two officers, who were unable to get Ramsey’s arms behind his back. The officers eventually used a Taser to subdue Ramsey, taking him into custody where he was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
