The incident started inside of the bicycle casino where the client was kicked out for public intoxication. While the client was being detained by casino security, law enforcement arrived and attempted to handcuff the client. The client head butted one officer causing him to bleed and thereafter kicked another officer in the shin. He thereafter head butted a third officer. The District Attorney filed 3 felonies and two misdemeanors. Michael negotiated a plea that resulted in a no contest plea to a single misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and no jail.
