Mitchell Man Arrested After Forcing His Way Into Apartment

Last updated on Tuesday, January 28, 2014

(MITCHELL) - A Mitchell man was arrested Monday night after he went to an apartment looking for individuals.

Mitchell Police Chief Mike Hardman says officers were called to an apartment in the 200 block of North Sixth Street at 11:57 p.m. after police received a 911 call from a woman reporting an intoxicated man had knocked on their door looking for individuals.

When the man was told by the woman's boyfriend that they didn't know the individuals, 32-year-old Douglas Gunderson of Mitchell became violent, yelling and pushed his way into the apartment. Gunderson told the occupants he didn't believe them and he was going to check other rooms in the apartment for the individuals.

The residents repeatedly asked Gunderson to leave but he refused. Several other residents in the apartment complex called police reporting a possible fight.

When police arrived, Gunderson continued to be disorderly and fight with officers.

He was arrested and charged with residential entry, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, resisting law enforcement and battery.
