A man who filed a false robbery report Monday night broke a patrol car window while reportedly banging his head against it.

Roanoke Rapids police Chief Chuck Hasty said the damage to the car caused by William Kaye, 33, is estimated between $300 to $400.

Hasty said alcohol use played a factor in the matter as he described Kaye, of Emporia, as being “very intoxicated.”

The events unfolded around 8:45 p.m. when Hasty said in a statement officers responded to a robbery of a person call at Bobby’s Supermarket at the intersection of Roanoke Avenue and Highway 158.

Kaye told officers someone approached him, demanded money and left the scene.

Security video review by Officer J. Spragins determined no robbery took place. When Spragins informed Kaye of the results of the review he became irate and cursed and yelled at the officers.

Spragins arrested Kaye for drunk and disruptive behavior. Kaye continued to yell and curse. When he was put in the patrol vehicle he began banging his head on the window until it broke.

Kaye was charged with drunk and disruptive; resist,delay, and obstruct an officer; possession of marijuana; damage to property and no operator’s license.

He received a $2,500 bond and July 28 court date.

Meanwhile, a man matching the description of the suspect Kaye said robbed him was arrested for possession of marijuana.

Hasty said in the statement Officer J. Shelburne encountered Charquon Lyndre Boone, 20, of Roanoke Rapids, and found him in possession of narcotics.  

Boone received a $500 bond and August 25 court date.

Lieutenant P. Parks, Sergeant T. Tyler, Master Officer A. Salmon and Officer R. Cross assisted.
