A Martinez man was arrested Monday after he stole his sister’s car while intoxicated, then fought with deputies.
Nicholas Scott Williams, 26, of Westport Road, was charged with driving under the influence, obstruction of police, driving on a suspended license and being a habitual violator.
Williams’ 30-year-old sister called authorities at about 3:30 p.m. after she said Williams stole her car. Her brother, who had no license and had been drinking, asked her to borrow her car while she was in the restroom. Though she refused, he took the car and left.
While a deputy was at the house, Williams returned in the car. When the deputy asked him to step to the back of the car and show his license, Williams claimed it was in the house and tried to walk away from the deputy to get it.
The deputy explained he was detaining Williams and his sister could get the license, but Williams ran into the house and locked the door. His mother opened the door, but the deputy waited for backup.
When a second deputy arrived, Williams’ mother opened the door, but he pushed the door closed and tried to keep the deputies outside. The deputies forced open the door, told Williams he was under arrest and ordered him to the floor.
Williams refused and struggled. It took four deputies to subdue and handcuff Williams, who was belligerent and physically aggressive. He told a deputy he was on felony probation and had nothing to lose.
Deputies noted that Williams smelled of alcohol.
He was being held in the Columbia County Detention Center Thursday without bond, according to jail records.
