LYMAN — A Lyman man was taken into custody Tuesday night, and charged with assault on a police officer after he resisted arrest.

Deputies from the York County Sheriff’s Department went to a home in Lyman to investigate a theft complaint.

When they arrived, the deputies determined that 24-year-old Kenneth Huff Jr. was wanted by Biddeford police on an outstanding warrant charging failure to pay fines.

Huff started to fight with a deputy when the officer tried to take him into custody. He was eventually subdued and taken to the York County Jail where he was charged with refusing to submit to an arrest, assault on a police officer and disorderly conduct.

Huff appeared in court today where a judge set his bail at $200 cash. Huff also will be required to sign a contract stating conditions he must abide by if he is released.
