The landlord reportedly came to the man’s unit and asked him to move out, but when the tenant asked for more notice, the landlord allegedly hit him with the club, police said.

The service added the victim suffered a small cut on his forehead.

After officers told the landlord he was under arrest, the man allegedly shoved one officer and grabbed another’s arm, police said.

While trying to take the man into custody, the suspect allegedly tried to reach for a toolbox where officers later found a large crowbar, the service added.
