  • Richard E. Anderson was booked Sept. 23 after he intruded into a house and wreaked havoc.
In the early morning hours of Sept. 23, a Nampa man arrived at a home near South Cole Road and West Camas Street uninvited. He started throwing dishes and glasses in the kitchen, breaking them, according to a Boise Police Department report. The home's residents tried to get him to stop, injuring his face in the struggle.

The police were called at 5:46 a.m. by a neighbor who reported the fight in progress. When one witness went over to the home, asking the occupants to keep the noise down, the intruder spit blood on him.

Officers called the household and a resident told them that Richard E. Anderson, 20, had come into the home uninvited and out of control. When Boise Police Department officers arrived on the scene, they heard yelling and saw three mens come out the door. Anderson still bled from the mouth and nose. He refused officers' orders to sit down and jumped up and down instead. Two officers made an attempt to handcuff him and he pushed and kicked them repeatedly as they struggled to arrest him. 

Anderson is suspected of being under the influence of an intoxicating substance and was taken to a hospital for medical treatment before being booked at the Ada County Jail for the felony of battery on a law enforcement officer, two counts of misdemeanor battery, and one count of malicious injury to property, also a misdemeanor.
