During the course of the stop, the suspect exited the vehicle, refused to comply with directives of officers and continued to approach the cruisers, police said.

The suspect – 43-year-old Brian Graham of Fort Washington – was arrested and charged with assault-and-battery on police, obstruction of justice and drunk in public.

Officers observed the suspect in the area and took him into custody. During a search of his person during the arrest, the suspect kicked an officer, police said.

The suspect – 34-year-old Mikhail Porter of the District of Columbia – was arrested and charged with assault-and-battery on police and petty larceny. He was held without bond.
