Upon arrival at the scene Deputy Roberts noted that a male subject stepped out of a vehicle there and began throwing items onto the ground stating he hadn't done anything and was not going to jail.

As Deputy Roberts attempted to investigate, this individual became combative creating a disturbance there.

Upon arrest, this individual briefly struggled with Deputy Roberts before being taken into custody.

An investigation was conducted and it was determined that the vehicle this individual was in at the time Deputy Roberts arrived at the scene was not his vehicle but belonged to the owner of the business.

  • Alcohol intoxication in a public place
  • Menacing
  • Resisting arrest
  • Disorderly conduct – second-degree
