Guest, police officer injured in scuffle at noisy Davis party

A Davis police officer and a partygoer from Sacramento suffered minor injuries early this morning after police were dispatched to investigate a loud party.

Police received a complaint of noise about 1:20 a.m. at 909 Alvarado Ave. The investigating officer believed the noise coming from the gathering was unreasonable and that the residents were in violation of the city's noise ordinance. The officer also suspected that underage guests were consuming alcohol in the apartment, according to a Police Department news release.

When the officer knocked on the front door, Michael Sean Flanagan, 25, of Sacramento came to the door and claimed to be a resident of the apartment, officials said. When officers attempted to issue Flanagan a citation for the excessive noise, he refused to provide identification, yelled profanities at the officers and tried to close the front door to avoid getting the ticket, according to the news release.

When officers tried to arrest Flanagan, he resisted and pushed one of the arresting officers, officials said. Officers were able to get Flanagan under control and take him into custody, but Flanagan and an officer suffered minor injuries in the process.

Subsequent investigation revealed that Flanagan was at the party but was not a resident of the apartment, police said.

After he was medically cleared at Sutter Davis Hospital, Flanagan was booked into Yolo County Jail on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer and battery on a peace officer.
