PD: Man arrested for threatening employees, assaulting officers

BROOKINGS – A Brookings man was arrested after he allegedly threatened staff, wouldn’t leave a business, and assaulted several law officers, according to Brookings Police and Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.

Dayzsha Bordeaux, 40, of Brookings, was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespass after notice, disorderly conduct, and felony simple assault against a law enforcement officer, Lt. Marci Gebers said.

The incident was reported at 8:10 p.m. Sunday and occurred in the 3000 block of LeFevre Drive, Gebers said.

“Officers were dispatched … for a male subject who was threatening staff and attempting to get behind the counter, and he was refusing to leave the business,” she said.

“When our officers arrived, they were able to locate the male outside of the business and he was arrested,” Gebers said.

“He was uncooperative with officers and actively resisted them. He kicked one of our officers in the chest,” she said.

“Our officer was not injured, thankfully,” Gebers said. “No one from the store was injured, either, thankfully.”

Bordeaux was transported to the Brookings County Detention Center, where he allegedly continued to be uncooperative with law enforcement.

“We are reviewing camera footage right now,” said Bart Sweebe, jail administrator, adding the investigation is ongoing. 

“We are charging him with four counts of simple assault against a law enforcement officer. He assaulted four different officers,” Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said. “One went to the hospital to be checked for injuries.”
