Michael Lewis Sester, of 714 Evers St., faces charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence and drug possession.

PLANT CITY — A 26-year-old Plant City man was jailed on a battery charge after police said he kicked and punched an officer in the face.

About 9:20 p.m. Sunday, officers were called to the home of Michael Lewis Sester, of 714 Evers St., on a report that Sester was being combative.

They found him standing in a bathroom doorway and asked him to show them his hands, an arrest affidavit states. He refused, and officers pulled him to the ground.

Sester began kicking the officers, finally breaking free, standing up and punching one officer in the face.

A search found Sester had methamphetamine. He was arrested on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence and drug possession.

He remained in jail Monday morning in lieu of $6,000 bail.
