At approximately 4:10 PM Officers responded to several reports of a tall male, wearing maroon pants and white T-shirt walking on Walnut Street throwing fireworks at and near people. Upon arrival Police made contact with a man who matched the description. The man then became aggressive and irate and began shouting and swearing at police.  He refused to stop and answer any questions.  Officers attempted to quell the situation by advising the man the reason for stop but he continued to yell and swear, and refused to cooperate with police. A witness then identified the man as being the same man who was setting off fireworks moments before. The man was then placed under arrest for Disturbing the Peace, Disorderly Conduct, Possession of Fireworks and Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (box cutter).
