A Perry man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant early Friday and earned a local charge from the Perry Police Department when he allegedly resisted being taken into custody.
Jose Alfredo Sanchez, 29, of 2609 Otley Ave., Perry, was arrested on a charge of interference with official acts and on a Dallas County warrant for probation violation on an original charge of domestic abuse assault.
The incident began about 3 a.m. Friday in the 2600 block of Otley Avenue, where a patrolling officer of the Perry Police Department saw Sanchez walking down the street and recognized him as someone with an active arrest warrant.
When the officer attempted to place Sanchez in handcuffs, “he began to pull away” and “attempted to leave his home and continued to resist the officer’s orders,” according to court records.
The officer was then compelled to assist Sanchez “to the ground,” where he was “placed in double-locked handcuffs,” according to court records.
Sanchez is held without bond in the Dallas County Jail. He is scheduled for a hearing April 1 in Dallas County District Court.
Sanchez was convicted of assault with intent to inflict serious injury in 2012 in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of assault causing bodily injury or mental illness in 2015 in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of interference with official acts in 2020 in Dallas County District Court.
