The Express Mart Chevron Station in the 300 block of Sacramento St. is the only business in Nevada City that is open 24 hours. As a result Nevada City Police are periodically called there for late night disturbances. Wednesday night around 11pm Nevada City Police Sgt. Chad Ellis says officers were called there for a person who refused to leave the store.
At first the subject gave police a wrong name and address but he was eventually identified as 23 year old Todd Austin.
Sgt. Ellis says the suspect kicked one of the officers in the thigh as they were trying to take him into custody and spitting on the officers as he was placed under arrest.
