Prince William Police charged a Bristow man for an assault on a police officer, Thursday, at the Route 28/Nokesville Road Gamestop.
Jan. 23 at 1:35 p.m., Prince William Police Officers responded to the Gamestop located at 9942 Sowder Village Square in Manassas, Prince William, to investigate an incident of disorderly conduct.
The investigation revealed that a male customer, later identified as Ryan Anthony Kesner, 22, of Bristow, became upset and began acting disorderly after getting into a verbal altercation with another customer.
