Cooper County man charged with trespassing, resisting arrest after refusing to leave casino

Cooper County deputies arrested Aaron Broaddus after officers were requested by Isle of Capri Security to respond to the gaming floor for a guest that was refusing to leave.

According to the probable cause statement, deputies had been contacted earlier after Broaddus was accused of using vulgar language and being extremely loud and obnoxious.

Deputies said when they made contact with Broaddus, officers determined he was not intoxicated and was advised to tone his demeanor down, and was allowed back on the gaming floor.

Minutes later, security received another complaint on Broaddus. When he was told to leave he began to get angry and started yelling expletives. Broaddus continued cursing, but eventually walked off the Isle of Capri Casino property.

Less than a hour later, Broaddus returned to the casino and sat on a bench. Deputies said they arrested him for trespassing but he continued to be difficult.

Deputies said Broaddus began kicking officers and a three second drive stun with a taser was deployed on him.

When Broaddus was taken to the Cooper County jail, deputies said they found marijuana and a blue glass smoking pipe.

Broaddus was charged with possession of a controlled substance at a jail, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, peace disturbance, trespassing, resisting arrest and assault.
