Man Arrested for Assaulting Officers, Dog Bites Woman's Neck

holdingcellAssault: On Sept. 16, while police were patrolling Mamaroneck Road, they observed a man removing items from the trunk of a BMW parked in the parking lot of the Scarsdale pool. The man said he had gotten a flat tire and had unsuccessfully attempted to order a tow. Police attempted to call numerous tow companies, but many were not answering. When one company answered, the man became combative and argumentative with the tow truck dispatcher. At that point, police began to look further into the man’s physical state. In continuing to talk with the man, police discerned signs of intoxication, including the smell of alcohol on his breath and glassy eyes. A further examination of the man’s car revealed that it was unregistered and bearing a Connecticut license plate that was assigned to a different car and owner. A check of his identity revealed he was named Raeshone J. Foote, 34, of Mt. Vernon. Foote said he would be registering the car the next day. He also told police he had a valid pistol permit and then lifted his shirt to show police he was not carrying a gun. Police informed Foote his car would be impounded, and he became combative. Police backup arrived on scene, and Foote grew increasingly agitated. With several officers on scene, Foote attempted to grab a 3-4 foot long metal pipe located in the back of his car. Officers told Foote not to grab the pipe, and he disregarded their commands. While Foote was attempting to grab the pipe, an officer put his foot on the pipe to hold it down. Foote pulled up on the pipe and attempted to gain control of it. The officer then grabbed the pip, pulled it from Foote’s hands and threw it approximately five to ten feet away. At this point, all officers on the scene used restraining force to bring Foote to the ground. Foote continued to resist being placed in cuffs and also resisted all commands. Once Foote was cuffed, he was placed in the back of a patrol car. There, he used his back and his cuffed wrists to attempt to break the protective glass panel separating the front and rear passenger seats. Foote was irate and verbally threatened the lives of the officers on scene. At headquarters, he continued to make threats and repeatedly kicked the door of his holding cell. The force of his kicks caused the lock on the cell door to become broken, and the cell wall became slightly bent. Firefighters were called to remove the lock, so Foote could be relocated to a jail cell. Foot was charged with second-degree menacing with a weapon, disorderly conduct, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, third-degree criminal mischief with intent to damage property, assault with the intent to cause injury to an officer, driving while intoxicated, having an unregistered motor vehicle, operation of a motor vehicle with improper plates. In lieu of $5,000 bail, Foote was remanded to Westchester County Jail.

On Sept. 18, police arrested Emiliano Catemaxcatemich, 27, of White Plains, on charges of driving while intoxicated – first offense, aggravated DWI with a blood alcohol level of .18 or more and an equipment violation.

While evaluating the situation, police noticed Catemaxcatemich was unsteady on his feet and was showing signs of intoxication. While speaking with police, Catemaxcatemich said he had hit a rock and admitted to having recently consumed six beers. Police conducted field sobriety tests, which Catemaxcatemich was unable to perform successfully. Catemaxcatemich was arrested and taken to headquarters.
