ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – A Calverton Park man was jailed last week after a drunken confrontation with his girlfriend’s family and police officers, culminating in him nearly striking his own father while fleeing law enforcement.

According to the St. Louis County Police Department’s probable cause statement, the incident occurred on Thursday, May 30. Police did not provide a more specific time or location.

A person called police to report a burglary at their neighbor’s home. While police were on their way, officers received word from the homeowner that there was not a burglary, but it was her daughter’s drunk boyfriend causing a ruckus, and she wanted him to leave.

Police arrived and saw the homeowner and boyfriend, Tyrone Cherry (age not provided), arguing on the front lawn. Officers told Cherry he had to leave.

Police claim Cherry cursed at them and then walked to his car to leave. Officers told Cherry he couldn’t drive because he was intoxicated.

However, police claim Cherry sped off in his vehicle. Cherry’s father happened to be riding a moped in the street at the time. Cherry’s father jumped off the moped to avoid being run over.

Investigators claim Cherry made a U-turn and drove back in the officers’ direction. Officers pulled out their firearms, pointed them at Cherry’s car, and began yelling commands at him. One officer had to leap out of the way to avoid Cherry’s vehicle. Cherry drove away.

Just minutes later, police were still at the residence when they heard banging at the back door. Police claim Cherry had returned and was trying to break into the house. Cherry was arrested at the scene.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Cherry with two counts of attempted first-degree assault, two counts of armed criminal action, and one count of resisting arrest. Cherry was jailed on a $100,000 bond. He’s due in court on Friday, June 7, for a bond reduction hearing.
