MILFORD — A disturbance at Eli’s Tavern downtown led to the arrest of a Massachusetts man who police said tried to strike an officer.

Jordan James, 21, of Swampscott, Mass., was charged with second-degree breach of peace, interfering with a police officer, assault on a police officer and third-degree criminal mischief.

He was released on a promise to appear in Milford Superior Court on May 21.

Police were called to Eli’s Tavern on Daniel Street around 12:45 a.m. Sunday on a report of a disturbance caused by an unruly patron who would not leave. When approached by officers, James became uncooperative and attempted to strike an officer with a closed fist, police said. He was taken into custody.
