Derek J. Dewaard, 20, of 7th Engineer Barracks, Fort Drum, was charged by Watertown police at 12:50 a.m. Sunday at 403 E. Main St. with second-degree harassment and resisting arrest.

Police said he swung at officer Wayne W. McConnell with a closed fist and then prevented officers from arresting him by physically fighting with officers and lying on his arms, refusing to put them behind his back.

He was sent to the Metro-Jefferson Safety Building and released on $200 bail.

He is due to appear in Watertown City Court.
