Arrest, a la cart: Pa. police use luggage cart to round up suspect

Police say they used a luggage cart to take away an uncooperative suspect at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott (above), on Monday, June 11, 2012.
(CBS/AP) CORAOPOLIS, Pa. - Police say they had to use a luggage cart to remove a man from a hotel near Pittsburgh International Airport after he allegedly fought with police.

Moon Township police say they responded on June 11 to the Airport Marriott for a complaint about an unpaid cab fare, and when the officer went to the man's room to get the money, he instead, told the officer to "put gloves on if he wanted to dance."

Police say William Crisman, 41, then spat and kicked at police before hotel staff supplied the luggage cart to wheel him away in handcuffs.

Arrest, a la cart.

Crisman, of North Fayette Township, faces a preliminary hearing July 3 on charges including aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
