Police say during a domestic dispute investigation around 1:40 p.m. Saturday, 28-year-old Robert Burton of Lacona was allegedly acting violently and yelling in the Water Safari parking lot. When police told him he was under arrest for disorderly conduct, he resisted and was then pepper sprayed.

While Burton was in the back of a patrol car, police say he violently kicked the door and caused substantial damage. While at the police station, police say they learned that Burton had also head-butted a Good Samaritan and pulled his wife's hair in front of two children before police arrived on scene.

Burton is charged with second-degree criminal mischief (damage to property more than $1,500), fourth-degree criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of second-degree harassment, obstruction of governmental administration, and unlawful possession of marijuana.

After being arraigned on the charges, police say Burton struggled with police and damaged a railing at the Town of Webb Courthouse.

Burton is being held in the Herkimer County Jail without bail.
