A Nassau County man became combative with Suffolk County Sheriff Deputies attempting to arrest him after he became belligerent and used abusive language during an otherwise peaceful eviction in Bay Shore.

Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Jericho resident Zane Sellis, 54, for revisiting arrest during an incident shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24.

According to Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon, Jr., while deputies were attempting to conduct a lawful eviction in Bay Shore, Sellis used foul and abusive language toward the deputies in a public place causing annoyance and alarm to others present.

“During the interaction, Mr. Sellis became belligerent and aggressive towards the deputies. Deputies attempted to place him under arrest, at which time he held his arms in front of his body with his hands clenched and refused to be handcuffed,” Toulon said.

Sellis was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, second-degree harassment, and obstructing governmental administration. He was transported to Sheriff’s Office Station in Riverhead for processing and later released. No return court date has been announced.
