Yarmouth officer attacked by prisoner
YARMOUTH - A Yarmouth police officer was injured after allegedly being attacked by a prisoner Friday. About 11 PM police responded to Beckers Package Store for a man acting disorderly. Ofc. Bradley Donahue found the man yelling at the clerk. A computer check showed 45-year old Carlos Rodriguez of Hyannis had six outstanding warrants.

During booking he reportedly became combative and was taken to Cape Cod Hospital for evaluation. At the hospital he allegedly suddenly became unruly and kicked and bit officer Donahue. Donahue was treated for a severe finger injury. Because the hospital is in the town of Barnstable, Barnstable Police were contacted and will additionally charge Rodriguez with assault & battery on a police officer and assault  & battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot).
