REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – Rehoboth Beach Police arrested two Pennsylvania men early Sunday morning after they reportedly resisted arrest on the Rehoboth Boardwalk.

Just after midnight, officers were patrolling in the area of Rehoboth Avenue and the boardwalk when they observed 32-year-old Timothy Trexler with an open container of alcohol on the boardwalk. Timothy was told to return to the bar with his drink, however he refused to comply, which led officers to issue him a civil citation for an open container of alcohol.

Timothy then began yelling and acting in an aggressive and disorderly manner, and when officers tried to place him in handcuffs, he struggled and tried to pull away and kick at officers. 32-year-old William Trexler then approached the scene and tried to interfere, eventually having to be forced away as officers tried to gain control of Timothy. Additional officers arrived and tried to arrest William Trexler, who also struggled and resisted while officers placed him in handcuffs.

Both men sustained minor injuries during the incident, as well as one officer.

Timothy Trexler and William Trexler were each charged with one count of misdemeanor resisting arrest and one count of disorderly conduct. Timothy also received a civil citation for possession of an open container of alcohol.

Both are currently being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on $1,100 secured bail.
