RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- The Colonial Heights man who scuffled with police at the 2013 Shamrock the Block was arrested again.

Jason Dotson, 23, is charged with disorderly conduct and assault on a law enforcement officer. He was arraigned Monday morning.

A police source told CBS 6 that Dotson got into a tussle that caused the officer's nose to bleed.

The incident happened around 2:30 Saturday morning, at the Hat Factory in downtown Richmond.

Last year Dotson was initially charged with obstruction of justice and being drunk in public.

He was seen in a video that everyone talked about, and many said that the force used to apprehend Dotson was “very excessive.”

A judge dismissed those charges and said that the police officer’s actions were also questionable.

Dotson is due back in court in April.
