Galesburg Police on Sunday, September 19th was dispatched to Moon Towers for an unwanted subject. Officers responded to the 5th floor of Moon Towers and made contact with 31-year old Artavia Gater – with whom they’ve had previous encounters. Visitors must check-in and carry a visitor’s pass at Moon Towers. An intoxicated Gater told officers he lived there, but couldn’t say which apartment number was his. After discovering Gater was trespassing, officers advised him to leave. Gater then purposely knocked over a decorative bench in the hallway. When officers ordered Gater to pick it up, he “flinched” at officers as if he was going to fight police, according to reports. Officers then informed Gater he was under arrest, and as police went to detain him, he swung around and began punching an officer several times in the face. Another officer deployed his taser, and Gater fell to the ground. He was taken into custody on Felony charges of Resisting a Peace Officer, Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer, and Criminal Trespassing.
