New Mexico man arrested after resisting arrest by Torrance County MPs

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man created his own nightmare situation in a pumpkin patch enjoyed by thousands of families this fall. He is accused of molesting actors in the corn maze and then having a meltdown when he was struck down in front of horrified families.

In mid-October, three out of four friends agreed to leave McCall’s Pumpkin Patch alone after it was reported that one of their group was harassing and even banging the head on actors in the corn maze. “He kicked me in the face. I could smell alcohol on his breath and then he started pretending whoa … whoa … belligerent … and then he tapped me and then walked away, “said an actor in a lapel video.

Jordan Allen, 26, charged with causing the scene, is featured in a lapel video interviewing Torrance County MPs while they are being led out.

Deputy: “There’s no need to talk to actors like that, dude.”
Allen: “I was just around.”
Deputy: “Okay, well, you go now.”

Everyone refuses, saying that they bought tickets and that the situation is quickly escalating in front of the families watching.

Friend: “Jordan! Stop!”
Deputy: “I’ll ask you nicely. If I have to touch you, you will end up in jail. “
Allen: “For what reason?”
Deputy: “If I have to get your hands on you, you will go to jail. Stop grabbing. “

After Allen reaches into his pocket, MPs try to get his hands behind his back, but they say he continued to fight. His friends and girlfriend pleaded with Allen to stop fighting officers. MPs say Allen was clearly drunk when he spat in the face of a MP and repeatedly asked for ID numbers.

Deputy: “I am Lieutenant Stolkum. It will all be in the report. We don’t go by ID numbers out here. “
Allen: “What’s your ID number?”
Deputy: “I don’t have a badge.”
Allen: “I’m a taxpayer … I deserve to know.”
Deputy: “Okay, please, Mr. Taxpayer, here is my badge. Let’s look at there. Huh, no number. “

Once handcuffed, Allens’ friend apologizes for his behavior, but Allen holds up to jail.

Allen: “I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Prison worker: “Okay, neither does Charles Manson.”

Drinking is not allowed in McCall’s Pumpkin Patch. Everyone is charged with misconduct and three charges against a peace officer and resistance to arrest. He is currently waiting for his trial.
