Security guards assaulted by resort guest

A Michigan man allegedly assaulted three Kalahari Resorts security guards Sunday evening.

Matthew Wittenberg, 36, of Wyandotte, was charged with persistent disorderly conduct and three counts of assault. 

When a security officer told Wittenberg to stop drunkenly jumping between hot tubs at about 9 p.m., Wittenberg allegedly refused, then “squared up” on him, according to an Erie County deputy’s report. “I’m not going anywhere,” he allegedly said. Wittenberg tried to hide in the men’s restroom, but when another guard went in to escort him outside, Wittenberg headbutted him, the report said.

While he was being cuffed, Wittenberg head-butted a second guard, then punched a third in the nose, the report said.

Wittenberg later told deputies he did nothing wrong and did not know why deputies were called.

He was taken to the Erie County jail.
