Macon police are looking for a man accused of felony obstruction after he allegedly fought and escaped from an officer trying to detain him in connection to a domestic disturbance call.
An officer responded to a domestic disturbance call at an apartment at 2295 Recreation Road about 1:40 p.m. Saturday and found a woman with swelling on her face and a scratch along her neck, according to a police incident report. The officer followed her inside the apartment and saw her arguing with her ex-boyfriend, identified as Zepplen Ford, 24.
When the officer tried to restrain Ford, he fought and escaped to outside the apartment. As he was climbing a fence, Ford kicked the officer in the face and escaped into the wood line near the apartment, the report stated.
Fords ex-girlfriend told police she called them after he kicked her door and started fighting with her.
Officers found Ford to have a warrant out on him for a previous case of police obstruction. New warrants will be taken out on Ford for felony obstruction, battery and criminal trespass, according to the report.
