CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Conway Officers responded to a noise complaint on Racepath Ave. and Norton Ave. Sunday after a group of people were arguing, which then led to a physical fight. Following the fight, police arrested a Loris man after he kicked and bit an officer in the arm, according to reports. 

As police approached the area, a group of people were crowding one another in the street. As police got closer to the group, two black males were having a verbal dispute with each other, which then became physical. The suspect began to punch the other male numerous times. 

Police approached the two and told them to break it up. The suspect threw more punches, at that time police grabbed the suspect and attempted to put him under arrest. Police told him numerous times to place his hands behind has back, which he refused. 

Police were able to place his left wrist in handcuffs and proceeded to grab his right arm. While doing so, the suspect kicked the officer four times in the knee, which resulted in striking the officer in the left side of the head and face. Reports say the suspect also bit the officer on the right forearm. 

More officers arrived on scene and attempted to stand the suspect up and put him in cuffs. The suspect again refused to follow orders and attempted to break free. Police warned the suspect that if he kept resisting and didn't follow orders he would use his taser. 

Police reports say, the taser was deployed and the suspect was escorted to the police vehicle. The suspect continued to refuse to obey rules and began kicking the rear passenger side door and window bars. 

The suspect, Curtis Mont Hemingway, 40, was transported to the Horry County Detention Center and charged with disorderly conduct on blue ticket, public drunk blue ticket, and a hold was placed on him to obtain a warrant for assault on a police officer while resisting arrest. 

The officer was treated at Conway Medical Center and treated for abrasions and a human bite and impact to the head and face.
