A Brownwood man sought in connection with last month’s Operation METHodical drug roundup kicked his way out of a mobile home as deputies stood outside Tuesday afternoon, then tried to jump over a porch railing before fighting with deputies.
    The man wasn’t finished: after being placed in the back of a deputy’s patrol vehicle, he broke out a window and continued to be verbally abusive and belligerent.
    Those were among the details in deputy Marvin Simpson’s report on the arrest of Joseph Havens, 22, who remained Wednesday in the Brown County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $97,000.
    Deputies arrested Havens on warrants for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, evidence tampering and evading arrest, and on new charges of evading arrest, resisting arrest, resisting transport and criminal mischief, jail records state.
    According to Simpson’s report:
    Deputies went around 3 p.m. to the 1700 block of Main Boulevard to serve a felony arrest warrant on Havens. Investigators Carlyle Gover and Robert Ramirez went to the front door of the mobile home, and deputies Posey and Simpson went to the back door.
    Simpson heard a loud bang, caused by Havens kicking open the back door, which was padlocked closed from the inside.
    As Havens tried to jump the porch railing, one of Havens’ legs got caught on the railing and his other leg hit Simpson’s neck.
    Simpson took Havens to the ground, and Havens “tried to escape my custody and actively resisted arrest,” Simpson’s report states.
    Simpson and Posey got Havens into custody, and deputies put him in leg irons before escorting him to Simpson’s patrol vehicle.
    Simpson was still outside his vehicle when he heard a loud noise and saw that Havens was breaking out the window, causing an estimated $450 in damage. Simpson was resecured and driven to jail.
