A Bellmore man was arrested Tuesday morning after he was spotted acting erratically in North Bellmore.

Police said that Douglas H. Fromwiller, 48, was spotted crouching between a building and a truck near the intersection of North Jerusalem Road and Newbridge Road at 1:05 a.m. When cops approached him, he allegedly became combative and attempted to conceal crack cocaine in his mouth.

While trying to apprehend Fromwiller, both officers fell due to icy conditions. One of the officers was treated and released from a local hospital after fracturing his right hand.

Fromwiller is charged with second-degree assault, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and Resisting Arrest. He was arraigned on Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.  

This is a breaking news story. Patch will provide more information as it's made available.

Now this piece of human excrement will get a free lawyer, 3 hots and a cot -all at taxpayers expense...The world is TOO crowded to have scumbags like this running around...Too bad he didn't swallow the crack and have a heart attack...Too harsh?...Don't think so...Those who do, maybe you could be his next victim...I bet you'd sing my tune then!
