A Beech Island man was detained on multiple charges after creating a disturbance at a home and resisting arrest, according to the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

Daniel Smith, 33, of Swamp Road, was charged with disorderly conduct and damage to county property. He was placed in the Aiken County detention center, where he remained on Monday afternoon.

An anonymous caller reported a disturbance at a home on Swamp Road on Sunday, according to a sheriff's report. An officer met with a victim who said Smith was inside. Smith exited the home and began using profanity toward the victim. Two officers had to take Smith to the ground because he tried to flee when they escorted him away to detain him, the report stated. During the struggle with the deputies, Smith allegedly struck a deputy in the abdomen with his elbow. They were able to get Smith into a patrol car.

Inside the patrol car, Smith damaged the passenger window by head butting it, according to the report. The deputies had to transfer him to another vehicle with window bars.

One of the deputies was taken by patrol car to Georgia Regents Medical Center because he became overheated and short of breath during the struggle.
