SALISBURY, MD. — Wicomico Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that a deputy had his hands full when he arrested a boozing bozo for DUI.
Police say that on January 3, 2015 at 8:36 PM a deputy stopped a vehicle operated by Miguel Angel Santos-Villalta, 40, of Salisbury, Md., for an equipment violation in the 500 block of S. Salisbury Blvd. Upon making contact with Santos, the deputy detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. That, along with other indicators suggested that Santos was operating his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.
The deputy administered field sobriety tests after which the deputy decided to place him under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police say that instead of submitting, he became hostile and attempted to walk away from the deputy which caused the deputy to take steps to prevent him from leaving. Santos-Villalta then initiated a physical confrontation with the deputy and fought the deputy’s efforts to take him into custody.
At one point, the suspect placed both hands around the deputy’s throat in an attempt to choke the deputy. The deputy became engaged with a serious struggle to gain the control of Santos that was not completed until additional law enforcement officers arrived.
The deputy involved suffered minor injuries consisting of abrasions and small lacerations.
Santos-Villalta was also operating the vehicle while his privilege to drive had been suspended.
Santos-Villalta was detained on a bond of $50,000.00 in the Detention Center by the District Court Commissioner.
