Evansville man accused of spitting on officers during his arrest

Posted: Updated:

Evansville police arrested 20-year-old Brent Cauler on multiple charges after they responded to a disorderly conduct call. The person who called 911 said Cauler was going berserk.

When officers arrived, Cauler began yelling at them and said he wanted to go to jail.

Cauler was told to calm down and to sit on a couch. As soon as he sat down, Cauler jumped back up and lunged at an officer. When officers tried to restrain him, he refused to cooperate.

Cauler was placed in handcuffs after a struggle with officers. When officers tried to take him to a patrol car, he kicked an officer in the knee.

After being placed in the back of the car, Cauler reportedly tried to kick out a window.

When officers were trying to transfer Cauler from the car to the prisoner transport van, they say he spit on an officer and a patrol supervisor.

Officers say Cauler also threatened to "hunt down and kill" all of the officers on scene.

Cauler was arrested on 11 different counts ranging from felony battery by bodily waste, intimidation, and resisting arrest.
