SAVANNAH, GA. (December 9, 2013): Two Metro police officers and a suspect they were trying to question were treated for injuries after a violent confrontation Saturday morning.
Angar Derium Williams, 36, of the 1900 block of Cimarron St., was charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license, obstruction of an officer with injury, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, removal of a firearm from a public official and parole violation after he fought with three officers in a neighborhood off Ogeechee Road about 5:30 a.m.
Two West Chatham Precinct patrol officers had responded to neighborhood complaints of suspicious vehicles near a park on Pate Street. While questioning the occupants of one car they encountered Williams in a second vehicle smelling of marijuana. He was unable to provide a driver’s license and a struggle began when they asked him to exit the car.
Williams finally was subdued when other Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers responded. He and the two injured officers were taken to hospitals for treatment of minor injuries.
Williams had been sentenced to seven years in prison for possession of cocaine in December 2010 and was paroled in February 2013. His record includes at least nine previous arrests for drug possession and/or sales of drugs, 13 probation/parole violations and six previous obstruction charges including one in which another officer was injured.
