Cops arrest man after scuffle

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police arrested a man Friday after a scuffle.

A property owner called police and said a man had moved into a house without permission. Police said the man in the house refused to answer the door, so officers forced their way in. Ron J. Decolongon, 27, of Stilwell, allegedly began to hit and kick an officer, who then had to wrestle Decolongon to another room. Tahlequah Detective Jeff Haney was able to assist the officer in handcuffing Decolongon, who was then jailed on charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer.
