Officers went to the 15th Street apartment at 5:30 and hear loud music coming from inside.
Both Roa and the unit’s co-owner, Fhanor Dominguez-Sanchez, “were intoxicated and belligerent to the responding officers,” said Sgt. Kenneth Porino.
As one of the officers tried to identify a female guest, Conde-Roa, 29, “became loud and got in the way of the officer and began to push him,” Porrino said.
Known as a physical defender, Conde-Roa is coming off surgery to his left instep.
The backup center back from Colombia was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a Police Officer. Police released him on his own recognizance pending a Municipal Court date, the sergeant said.
They issued a summons to Dominguez Sanchez for excessive noise, Porrino said.
