Police said a man wanted to go to jail with his arrested brother, so he shoved an officer and got his wish. David Jacob Ginnis, 35, pleaded guilty Wednesday to assault on a police officer and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with the full sentence suspended.
Ginnis’ brother got into a fight on Monday night and was arrested on a criminal trespass charge.
Police said Ginnis, who appeared intoxicated, approached the arresting officer and asked if he could speak with his brother, who was in the back of a patrol car.
After five minutes, Ginnis asked if he could join his brother in jail if he assaulted the officer.
The officer told him that would “not go well” for him, but Ginnis shoved the officer with his fist. He was arrested.
