The officer had caught up to the vehicle at this time and activated his overhead lights and then shined his spotlight on the driver as he opened the door to exit the vehicle. The officer ordered Ramsey to stop, but he ran into a nearby backyard, according to the police report.
“He attempted to get into the back door of the home, but I grabbed him and told him to get down,” according to the report. “(Ramsey) refused to get on the ground.”
The officer eventually wrestled Ramsey to the ground. After the officer placed handcuffs on Ramsey, he “was yelling about seeing a supervisor and was yelling about the validity of the arrest,” according to the report.
Ramsey was transported to the Fairfield Police Department, where police said he told them he “drank a lot in the day but stopped at about 6 p.m.”
