Middletown Police report the following incidents.

SECOND-DEGREE BREACH OF PEACE — On Sept. 30, officers responded to Main and Green streets for two people in a heated argument with a small crowd gathering. They were Latrelle Hall, 38, of Stoneycrest Drive and Mustafa A. Ar-Rasheed, 73, of South Street, Portland. Hall told officers that at 5:15 p.m., she was hanging out with Ar-Rasheed and he started calling her expletives and grabbed her neck.

The police report says he yelled at officers, made faces and stuck his tongue out at them, saying officers were hiding under desks. He appeared to be on drugs to police.

Ar-Rasheed, the report says, said Hall called him names and slapped him. He has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions for incest rape, assault with intent to rape, possession of narcotics, sale of narcotics, assaults, probation violations, burglary, breach of peace, larceny and illegal use of a credit card.

DUI (SECOND OFFENSE), FAILURE TO DRIVE IN PROPER LANE, FAILURE TO SIGNAL — On Sept. 25 at 2:32 p.m., Victor R.L. Gadson, 28, of Garden Street, Hartford, was stopped at Washington and West streets straddling the white line.

According to the report, when the light turned green, Gadson didn’t move his car, then slowly moved at the yellow light and took a illegal U-turn. Police saw him sitting in the driver’s seat with his head slumped forward. When asked how much he drank, he mumbled incoherently, the report says. He failed sobriety tests and had a prior DUI in 2001.
