LORAIN — Two Lorain men face charges after being accused of fighting with police in a home at 1606 Fillmore Ave., about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday.

Brian Olds, 21, of the 1500 block of Lehigh Street, was charged with assault, disturbing the peace and obstructing official business.
Police Officer Jamie Ball wrote in a report that police responded to reports of glass breaking and people screaming . Police said they found a combined 20 pills of amphetamines and dextroamphetamines in the home.
Ball said he handcuffed Brian Olds, whose chest was covered in blood and cuts and who was screaming that he wanted to be arrested. When Officer James Ventura spoke to resident Jenny Carroll, Ball wrote that Olds became enraged and lunged at Ventura, knocking Ball over. As Ball and Ventura tried to subdue Olds, Ball said Brandon Manning, who was also in the home, charged him from behind and then charged Ventura. Ventura threw Manning to the ground and Olds tried to pull Ventura off Manning, according to Ball. Ball said he struck Olds twice in the face with an open palm and both Olds and Manning were eventually subdued.
Manning was being held Tuesday night at the Lorain County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 bond and is due in Lorain Municipal Court Feb. 18. Olds is free on a $3,000 bond. His court information was unavailable Tuesday night.
Carroll, 29, was cited for disturbing the peace.
