LAKEPORT, Calif. – Police arrested a Lakeport man last weekend on charges of drug possession and resisting arrest after he struggled with officers, leading them to deploy a Taser.

Jose Guadalupe Aguilar, 19, was arrested at around 8 p.m. last Saturday, Jan. 19, for possession of suspected methamphetamine, resisting arrest, committing a felony while on bail, threatening a peace officer and probation violation after being stopped on his bicycle for a vehicle code violation, according to Lakeport Police Lt. Jason Ferguson.

During contact with Aguilar, Officer Joe Eastham noted he was acting suspicious and attempting to back away, Ferguson said.

As Officer Eastham and Sgt. Dale Stoebe tried to detain Aguilar for a probation search, he began to actively resist the officers by pulling his arms away and kicking toward them in an attempt to flee, according to Ferguson.

After several attempts to get Aguilar to comply with no result, a Taser was deployed and Aguilar was
eventually taken into custody, Ferguson said.

Ferguson said that during a jail custody search, Aguilar was found to have on him an undetermined amount of suspected methamphetamine. As a result, Aguilar was additionally charged with bringing narcotics into a correctional facility.

At the time of his arrest, Aguilar was out on bail from a previous incident on Jan. 7 where he was arrested in the 1700 block of N. High St. for an outstanding arrest warrant, Ferguson reported.

During that incident, Aguilar actively resisted arrest by trying to punch Officer Gary Basor in an
attempt to flee, Ferguson said.

Aguilar was eventually taken into custody and transported to the Hill Road Jail, Ferguson said. Located on Aguilar’s person during that Jan. 7 jail search was an undetermined amount of suspected methamphetamine, along with $600 in various denominations of US currency.

Aguilar was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance for sale, resisting arrest and violation of probation for the Jan. 7 incident, and booked at the Hill Road Correctional Facility with a no bail hold, Ferguson said.

Jail records indicated he is scheduled to appear in court on his latest arrest on Wednesday.
