A Santa Rosa man was hit with a stun-gun and arrested on drug charges Saturday after he fled from officers on his bicycle, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. A deputy attempted to stop the suspect on his bicycle around 5:45 p.m. near Stony Point and Todd roads in Santa Rosa after observing several traffic violations, officials said. The suspect fled before crashing near Stony Point Road and Butler Avenue, and was tackled by the deputy before he could flee on foot.
The suspect allegedly struggled, and was struck by a stun-gun by the deputy and taken into custody. A search found around one ounce of methamphetamine, $1,278 in cash, methamphetamine pipes, a gram scale and suspected stolen property on his person, officials said. Police arrested William Short, 39, on suspicion of resisting arrest, violating probation, possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for sale. He was booked into jail without bail due to his alleged probation violation.
