Salem Man Arrested After Coming to Police Station Drunk

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 33-year-old Salem man has been arrested on three charges by Salem Police after he allegedly came to the Police Station Monday night intoxicated complaining that he had been battered by his girlfriend.  Charles Hammond of East Mitchell ended up going to jail for alleged obstructing justice, assault and resisting arrest.  Police say an investigation showed Hammond had not been involved in an altercation.  He was arrested at that point for obstructing justice for giving police false information.  Hammond then allegedly began making threats of what he planned to do to his girlfriend, resulting in the assault charge.   He had the resisting arrest charge added after allegedly fighting efforts to handcuff him.
