A Hillsboro man is facing a total of three charges after allegedly fleeing police on Saturday.

An affidavit filed with the Hillsboro Municipal Court stated that the Hillsboro Police Department responded to a report of a suspicious male at a local laundry mat. Upon arrival, officers were told that the subject was “acting strange, talking to himself, (and) messing with the washer,” according to the affidavit.

When the officers attempted to speak with the subject – later identified as Timothy Brown II, 33 – he allegedly acted “distant and strange,” as stated in the affidavit.

He then went outside, where officers continued trying to speak with him. His erratic behavior allegedly persisted. According to the affidavit, Brown “mouth(ed)” the officers and “walked to the edge of the building and acted like he was pointing a gun at the original (complainant) and acted like he pulled the trigger.”

Officers reported that they “decided to arrest (Brown) for disorderly conduct,” following that alleged “threatening action,” the affidavit states.

The affidavit adds that Brown allegedly continued to be disorderly and then fled the officers. He was reportedly “corner(ed) … at the Ole Depot, with the help of a civilian,” according to the affidavit.

Brown allegedly began to fight and “several other civilians came to assist, and (Brown was) … subdued,” as stated in the affidavit.

When Brown was taken into custody, two hypodermic needles were reportedly found on his person, the affidavit added.

Brown faces two second-degree misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and possession of drug abuse instruments. He is also charged with fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

According to court records, Brown is set to be arraigned Wednesday.
