While conducting a motor vehicle stop, officers determined that there was an active protective order for a female in the car with Brito. The order stated that Brito was to have no contact with the female and was to stay at least 100 yards away from her.

During the stop, a department narcotics detection dog indicated the presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle.

A search turned up marijuana, a digital scale and numerous plastic baggies in the vehicle, according to police.

Brito was charged with violating a protective order, possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was released on a $5,000 surety bond on the charge of violating the protective order.

Haven was involved in a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Church Street and E. Putnam Avenue. Police said they detected the odor of alcohol and gave Haven a field sobriety tests, which he failed.

While Haven was in custody at headquarters, police said, he "became combative" as officers attempted to place him in a detention cell. Haven wrestled the officers to the ground and had to be subdued with a Taser, according to Lt. Kraig Gray.

Haven was unable to post a $7,500 bond and was being held pending a Jan. 18 court date.
