LEOMINSTER -- A Leominster man is facing four charges, including kidnapping, after police arrested him twice in a span of five hours late Monday and early Tuesday morning.
Clark Desjardins, 38, of 121 Sixth St., Leominster, is charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery, resisting arrest and kidnapping. Leominster District Court Judge John J. Curran Jr. ordered him held on $20,000 bail during his arraignment Tuesday.
Police responded to Border Grille & Bar at 246 Mill St. on Monday night for the report of a man creating a disturbance, according to Lt. Michael Goldman.
Officer Kyle Mimnaugh recognized Desjardins from previous incidents and determined that he was highly intoxicated, Goldman said.
Mimnaugh placed Desjardins under arrest for disorderly conduct.
Desjardins posted bail early Tuesday morning and went back to his home on Sixth Street, according to Goldman.
Police then received a 911 call from Desjardin's home for a domestic disturbance at around 4 a.m.
Police arrived to find Desjardins sitting at his kitchen table surrounded by empty beer cans and smoking a cigarette, according to Mimnaugh's police report.
His girlfriend told police that Desjardins had physically prevented her from leaving the home earlier by grabbing the purse she was carrying and throwing her against a wall.
The girlfriend told police she had been trying to get to her mother's home in order to get away from Desjardins. Desjardins had bloodshot eyes and appeared extremely intoxicated, according to the police report.

Police charged Desjardins with assault and battery and kidnapping based on information provided by the girlfriend, Goldman said.
"The statute states that if you restrain someone from leaving against their will you can be charged with kidnapping," Goldman said. "He allegedly held her back as she tried to leave the home and assaulted her." Police also charged Desjardins with resisting arrest for allegedly fighting with officers as they tried to take him into custody, Goldman said. Desjardins, who is due back in court on Nov. 17, is also facing charges of aggravated assault and battery and violating an abuse-prevention order stemming from previous incidents.
