Eastern Shore Police Beat: Hell no, copper, I ain’t gonna go to jail!

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.
