Problems at an apartment in La Salle ended with a man being hauled to the county jail.  Police say they were called to an apartment at the Grant Street housing three times Thursday.  The final time was around 10:30pm Thursday.  They say Thomas Vernoy of La Salle elbowed a police officer in the chest.

And as Vernoy was being arrested they say he head-butted the same officer in the face.  Vernoy was arrested for aggravated battery and resisting arrest.  He was taken to the La Salle County Jail to await a bond hearing.
