While in the parking lot, Melton took off his shirt and challenged the school principal to a fight, the criminal complaint says, before apparently attempting to drive away from the school parking lot with a woman and a 5-year-old child in the vehicle. Officers were on the scene when Melton got out of the vehicle and went to the passenger side, in what appeared to be an attempt to switch spots. After noting alcohol on Melton’s breath, officers ordered Melton to leave the vehicle. He refused, the charges state. When an officer tried to physically remove him from the vehicle, Melton swung at the officer’s face with a closed fist. Two other officers tried to assist the first officer to subdue Melton, who by this point was swinging his arms wildly, the complaint says. Melton pushed one officer back onto a nearby vehicle and threw another backwards.While officers continued to try and place Melton under arrest, he made a grab for one of their guns, charges state. The officer was able to maintain control of his firearm and pistol-whipped Melton in the face.
