On January 22, 2013, the Norfolk Police Division received a report of a disturbance at Franklin’s Bistro, located at 904 Riverside Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers were advised by management that two male subjects refused to leave the establishment after being told to leave.

Officers made contact with the subjects and observed both subjects appeared to be intoxicated. They had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage about them, slurred speech and slow movements.

Both subjects were issued written trespass warnings and told to leave. Both subjects were told not to drive.

As the officers were leaving the establishment, they observed the subjects enter a vehicle and the driver, identified as Bradley J. Skalberg, age 46, of Norfolk, started the vehicle. The officers made contact with Skalberg, had him exit the vehicle and requested that he perform standard field sobriety tests.

Skalberg refused to do so and attempted to get back into the vehicle. He was stopped and then resisted attempts to place him in handcuffs. During the struggle, Skalberg attempted to kick one of the officers and grabbed the other officer’s sidearm.

Skalberg was taken into custody and transported to the Police Division. Following further investigation, Skalberg was booked into the Norfolk City Jail for obstructing a police officer, resisting arrest-1st offense, DUI-2nd offense, refusal to submit to a preliminary breath test, and refusal to submit to a chemical test. He was later released on bond.
