A Stamford narcotics agent was seriously injured while attempting to arrest an area man for possession of cocaine, police said.

The incident began around 11 p.m. Friday, March 15, when members of the Stamford Narcotic and Organized Crime Squad attempted to arrest Malcolm Chalmers, 26, of Stamford, on Bedford Street for allegedly selling cocaine to the local bar crowd, said Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin.

When officers approached Chalmers he began to fight officers, injuring one officer by sending him slamming into a parking meter hard enough to dislodge the meter and causing a large wound to the officer's head that required seven staples, Conklin said.

Eventually, officers were able to wrestle the 6-foot, 260-pound man to the ground where he was put under arrest, he added.

During an investigation and search, officers found seven ziplock bags of cocaine, Conklin said.

Chalmers was charged with possession, possession with intent to sell, and interfering with police. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

The wounded police officer is undergoing testing, Conklin added.

This is the second arrest of Chamlers by Stamford Police in the past month. He was arrested in a Bedford Street bar on Feb. 15, on four active probation violations, Conklin said.
