Deputies Taser threatening suspect
When Sheriff’s deputies went to look for a suspect wanted on a warrant in the 700 block of Arroyo Road, they didn’t find the person they were looking for, but they find her brother who was on probation and appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance.
At about 9:04 a.m. Monday, Nov. 5, deputies went looking for the woman and found her brother instead. The man fled from the deputies and while running, was emptying his pockets of a small amount of marijuana and a glass smoking pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine.
The man stopped and reportedly came at the deputies in a threatening manner. Deputies had to Taser the man in order to cuff him for transport to jail.
James Heywood, 35, of the Springs, was charged with felony probation violation, obstructing a peace officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
