Davis man faces drug, resisting arrest charges

By From page A2 | April 09, 2014

Erratic behavior led to the arrest of a 29-year-old Davis man on drug and resisting-arrest charges Tuesday night in Winters, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Officer Cindy Leal said Christopher B. Roberts was holding a sign on the sidewalk and “appeared to be talking to himself” when a CHP officer came to a stop at a red light at Highway 128 and County Road 90 at about 8 p.m.

“While the officer was stopped, Roberts began yelling at him,” Leal said. When the officer pulled to the curb, Roberts picked up his property and ran to a nearby convenience store, where he reportedly began talking incoherently and had to be escorted from the building.

Outside, Roberts allegedly became aggressive and threatening with both the CHP officer and a Winters police officer who arrived on scene, Leal said. He was taken into custody and lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
