Ruben Rogelio Arrested for Aggravated Assault and Resisting Arrest
 
Posted: 12/24/2012 12:00 AM
 
On Sunday, December 16th, 2012 the Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force was working saturation patrols in the City of Maricopa.
 
At 2:30 a.m. a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Traffic Sergeant attempted to stop a vehicle near Maricopa Road and West Smith Road after he observed the driver traffic commit several traffic violations consistent with those of an impaired driver.
 
The vehicle failed to stop and a short pursuit with speeds right at or under the speed limit ensued through a residential neighborhood. The driver later identified as Rubio Rogelio (age 31 of Maricopa) eventually stopped his vehicle in his own driveway in the 43000 block of West Lindgren Drive.
 
Rogelio refused to exit his vehicle despite numerous commands. The driver’s side window was broken out of the vehicle by the sergeant. Rogelio remained uncooperative and resisted arrest when the sergeant attempted to take him into custody.
 
Following the arrest, the sergeant had to get stitches put in his hand and Rogelio had to be treated for minor injuries as a result of his resisting arrest.
 
Rogelio was booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center for Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest and Failure to Yield. Additional charges of driving while impaired by alcohol and other related DUI charges are pending the results of a blood test.
 
Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “The Pinal County Regional DUI Task Force has had a tremendous impact keeping our roadways safe. We want everyone to have a safe and happy holiday season. If you are going to drink, please have a designated sober driver. Nobody wants to spend the holidays behind our bars.”
