114 State St. (Michelangelo's Coffee House)


Kevin E. Kieren, age 27, no permanent address
Mr. Kieren was arrested for Attempt to Disarm a Peace Officer, Disorderly Conduct, Resisting, and on a Probation Violation.


A downtown coffee shop manager helped two officers hold down a combative suspect early this morning after the man grabbed for the holstered gun of a peace keeper.

The disturbance started inside Michelangelo's Coffee House, 114 State St., when the man urinated on a chair. The manager asked him to leave, and the subject, who was not purchasing anything, responded by urinating again, this time on the floor. He eventually did go out the front door, which the manager locked as police were called.

When officers arrived the suspect re-entered through a backdoor. They were going to arrest him for disorderly conduct, but he struggled with them as they tried to take him into custody. He grabbed for the gun of one, prompting the other to use a Taser on the man. Even after it was deployed, the suspect continued to actively resist, prompting the manager to also join in efforts to bring him under control.
