A Nyack man has been charged with harassment and resisting arrest after a confrontation with Orangetown police at bar closing time in downtown Nyack.
Police said that as town officers were attempting to clear the sidewalk in front of 82 Main St., the Black Bear Saloon, at 4:08 a.m. Saturday, Claude Alex Mehu, 29, of 75 N. Broadway, became combative and verbally threatened to stab an Orangetown police officer.
Mehu, according to police, refused to comply with police officers and a brief struggle ensued, with Mehu and police officers falling to the ground. Police said no weapon was involved or was found.
Mehu was charged with harassment, a violation, and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. He was later released on $200 bail pending a Nyack Village Court hearing on Oct. 9.
