Delaware trooper is kicked during arrest attempt

December 26, 2009

NEWARK, Del. - Police say a Newark man kicked a state trooper who tried to take him into custody. Police were called Tuesday to a home about a strange vehicle parked in the driveway. Officials say troopers found the driver passed out at the wheel, covered in vomit, and could smell alcohol and marijuana. The driver, 20-year-old Adam Decktor, got out of the car after troopers asked him to. But police say he then kicked an officer and tried to run away. He's charged with offensive touching of a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, marijuana possession, driving under the influence and other charges.
