A 31-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly attempted to spit on an officer, threatened to harm officers and their families, and head-butted an officer in the face, police said.

About 7:40 p.m. Aug. 9, officers went to the 500 block of Emmett Street to investigate an “unwanted intoxicated subject,” who was later identified as Isaac Ramones, Joliet police Sgt. Christopher Botzum said in an email.

Botzum said Ramones did not live at the residence and he refused to leave. Botzum did not respond to questions about why Ramones was not wanted there, whose home it was at and why he allegedly wouldn’t leave.

The officers attempted to take Ramones into custody but a struggle ensued between them, Botzum said. He did not not respond to a question about why there was a struggle between Ramones and the officers.

While Ramones was being escorted to a squad car, he threatened the officers “with harm and attempted to spit at one of the officers,” Botzum said.

“While en route to the station, Ramones continued to threaten officers with harm to them and their families,” Botzum said.

When Ramones was at the Joliet police station, he “head-butted one of the officers in the face,” Botzum said.

Ramones was arrested on charges of aggravated battery to a police officer, resisting a police officer and criminal trespassing.

Ramones was booked into the Will County jail. He was released on a $20,000 bond Thursday morning.
