A Vernon man is facing eight charges after he tussled with police while running away from a domestic incident on Sunday, an arrest report indicates. 

Justin Small, 27, was taken into custody at 2:15 p.m. after he fled his residence - Unit 2K at 130 Vernon Ave., police said. He had allegedly begun choking a woman during an argument, police said. 

The woman ran out of the apartment and began banging on the doors of neighboring units asking for help, according to a police report. She was eventually able to contact police. 

Officers then tracked down Small near the Vernon Avenue-Grand Avenue intersection and took him into custody after a brief scuffle, according to a police report. 

Police found a telephone ripped out of the wall in the apartment, according to a report. 

Small was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, interfering with police, disorderly conduct, interfering with an emergency call, violating a protective order, third-degree assault, second-degree strangulation and second-degree unlawful restraint, police said. 


In a domestic incident on Saturday, Vernon police charged Darrell Lawson, a 54-year-old resident of 67 Timber lane in Windsor, with disorderly conduct, second-degree reckless endangerment and first-degree unlawful restraint, according to an arrest report. 

The incident was on Progress Avenue and he was taken into custody at 10:02 p.m., police said.
