Nampa Police officer injured during arrest of disturbance suspect

On 10-23-16 at approximately 1:20 p.m., Nampa Police officers responded to a disturbance at a residence in the 300 block of West Crestwood Drive in Nampa. A Nampa Police Officer, a 16-year veteran, located the individual, Jeremiah Heady, a 20-year-old Nampa man, and made contact with him. Heady had walked a short distance away from the residence when the officer arrived on scene. Heady was carrying a large 5-foot-long stick. He was advised to drop the stick; however he refused to do so. Once the stick was removed from the subject he turned to walk away from the officer. The officer then attempted to detain the subject however he resisted and started to fight with the officer.

As Heady struggled with the officer, back and forth, Heady, at one point was able to get behind the officer and he placed his arm around her throat. The officer was able get free and the struggle continued, however Heady was again able to get behind and somewhat on top of the officer, placing his arm around her neck again. Once other officers arrived on scene, Heady quit resisting and was taken into custody. Heady was charged with battery on a police officer, a felony, resisting and obstructing an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use. He was booked into the Canyon County jail.

The Nampa officer was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released. The severity of her injuries are unknown at this time pending further testing.
