A man was arrested for domestic assault and resisting arrest earlier this week by Washington police officers.

Guy D. Clark, 53, Sullivan, was arrested Monday, July 2, in the 900 block of East Fifth Street after he and a woman got into a verbal argument inside Mercy Hospital.

According to Washington police, the argument continued in front of the Washington American Legion, where officers attempted to intervene.

Clark was not cooperating with the officers and was being verbally abusive toward the woman, police said. When the officers attempted to arrest Clark he resisted.

The officers arrested Clark on an outstanding warrant for a misdemeanor in Franklin County, resisting arrest and domestic assault.

At press time, charges against Clark were still pending.
