A Lancaster County man who failed in his attempt to reconcile with an ex-girfriend in Northampton County couldn't stay on good terms with police there either, officials said.

Daymond Williams caused a disturbance in the 2200 block of Forest Street in Wilson, Northampton Co., around 3 a.m. Monday, waking up neighbors, blocking traffic and using profanity at police who were trying to find him a place to stay after an attempted reconciliation with an ex-girlfriend fizzled.

Williams and his ex began arguing when he told her son that he did not have to listen to his mom and could leave her house, officials said.

Williams then began quarreling with the woman's 16-year-old daughter, and eventually left with the boy, officials said.

When Williams returned with the boy, he began packing his clothes on the front porch, and when police arrived, he kept trying to walk away before they were done questioning him, officials said.

Williams kept telling police that because he was from Lancaster County, he didn't have a place to stay and didn't want to live on the street, so officers called a homeless shelter in Easton, but there was no room for him, officials said.

Williams was arrested after he became more belligerent when officers told him he could not stay at his ex's home, officials said.

Williams, 38, of 538 West Orange St., Lancaster, was arraigned on four counts of disorderly conduct and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $3,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 10 a.m. July 31.
