UNIONDALE - A man accused of causing a disturbance in a Hempstead courthouse will return to court today to face criminal charges.

Officials say Jamel Ricks caused a ruckus yesterday in an elevator at First District Court.

Officers say they told the Uniondale man to quiet down but he kept yelling.

Cops told Ricks he was under arrest but they say he struggled and injured three court officers in the process.

Mitchell is being charged with assault and resisting arrest.
