WEST YARMOUTH, Mass. — A Massachusetts felon has been arrested on counts of assault and battery on a police officer.

Police say 35-year-old Jarred Adkins of Hyannis was arrested when he repeatedly walked into oncoming traffic on Route 28, and then struck two officers as they tried to subdue him.

The arrest happened at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday when police found Adkins near Timmy's Roast Beef of West Yarmouth with cuts on his body, and identified him as the man who had been on the road.

Police say they were forced to place him in a cell without completing booking due to his uncooperative behavior.

Adkins had been wanted on an active warrant out of Cherokee Village, though no information on the Arkansas case was immediately known. He is being held on $500 cash bail. An attorney for Adkins could not be immediately identified.
