The Morgantown Police Department has arrested an Ohio man and charged him with nighttime burglary.

At approximately 10:55 p.m. on November 16, Morgantown police responded to a disturbance reported at a residence on Brockway Avenue. Once officers were at the scene, they found several people involved in an altercation outside the residence.

Once officers were able to stabilize the situation and start an investigation, Nolan Worden, 33 of Columbus, Ohio, was identified as the suspect in the incident, according to Morgantown police.

Morgantown Police said Worden initially went to the residence and knocked on the door and demanded entry. When he was denied entry, Worden went to the back of the residence and kicked in the basement door, causing damage to the door and door frame. Once Worden gained entry into the residence, he kicked in the kitchen door, causing more damage. He was then confronted by individuals inside the residence who forced him into the backyard as officers arrived at the scene, according to Morgantown police.

Worden was taken into custody. While being removed from a police car for processing, Worden continued to be combative and kicked an officer in the head. Morgantown police said Worden was uncooperative and refused to be fingerprinted and photographed.

He was charged with one count of nighttime burglary and was transported to North Central Regional Jail. His bail is set at $25,000.
