CLEARLAKE OAKS, Calif. – A Clearlake Oaks woman was arrested last week on battery charges, with additional charges of resisting arrest and battery on a peace officer added after she fought with the deputies arresting her.
Angela Carol Sanchez, 47, was taken into custody on the afternoon of Thursday, June 21, according to Sgt. Steve Brooks of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
Shortly after 2 p.m. that day sheriff’s deputies responded to the area of 9900 E. Highway 20 in Clearlake Oaks for a report of a battery, Brooks said.
Upon their arrival the deputies contacted the victim, who alleged that Sanchez had struck her in the back of the head. Brooks said the victim wanted Sanchez arrested for battery and signed a private persons arrest form.
Deputies contacted Sanchez in front of her residence, which is in close proximity to the victim’s home. As deputies went to take Sanchez into custody, she violently resisted and attempted to remove the arresting deputy’s firearm from its holster, Brooks said.
Even after Sanchez was placed in handcuffs, she continued to resist by lunging head first and spitting at the deputies, according to Brooks.
Sanchez was arrested for attempting to remove a firearm from a peace officer, battery on a peace officer, obstructing or resisting a peace officer, and battery on a person, Brooks said.
While being transported to the Lake County Hill Road Correctional Facility, Sanchez attempted to break the window out of the patrol vehicle by kicking it and causing damage, Brooks said. Upon Sanchez’s arrival to the facility, she also was charged with vandalizing the patrol vehicle.
