While he was being arrested, police say another man tried to prevent officers from arresting Hartfield. 

He then allegedly encouraged a group of people to surround the officers and get physical with them. He was also arrested. 

Since February, this is Hartfield's fourth arrest for possessing a loaded handgun.
