A James City County man was arrested and charged for assaulting a police officer over the holiday weekend.

On July 5, 2014 around 1:20 a.m., a Williamsburg police officer observed a group of four walking westbound in the 900 block of Richmond Road.

One of the individuals, a white male, was staggering badly and a female subject was trying to hold the male up, police say.

The male subject would eventually be identified as 20-year-old Cameron Ryan Nirmaier of James City County. The officer approached the group and inquired about Niraier’s condition. The police officer determined that Nirmaier was intoxicated and attempted to take him into custody.

As the officer was trying to handcuff him, Nirmaier pulled his arm away and pushed the officer. He was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail where he was charged with Assault and Battery on a L.E. officer, Resisting Arrest, Underage Possession of Alcohol, and Drunk in Public.
