A central Toledo man who police said punched a city refuse worker in the head several times yesterday was booked into the Lucas County jail pending his arraignment Monday in Toledo Municipal Court.
Calvin Ballard, 27, of 2224 Warren St. was charged with misdemeanor assault and menacing. He remained in jail last night in lieu of a $600 bond.
Ballard is accused of punching the city worker, Eddie Boyd, in the head and upper body several times about 11:50 a.m. in the 500 block of Everett Street because he was angry at the way the garbage was being collected, police said.
Ballard tried to run from police when they arrived, but he was arrested a short time later, police said.
