A McCormick man will spend the next 10 years in prison following a December altercation with police that ended with him breaking the arm of a sheriff’s deputy, the 11th Circuit Solicitor’s Office said on Monday.
Rodriquez Latron Blair, 42, pleaded guilty to two counts of felony resisting arrest and was sentenced by Chief Administrative Judge Frank R. Addy Jr. Blair also pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and battery from an unrelated arrest and received a concurrent three-year prison term.
Blair will be placed on probation following his jail term.
On Dec. 16, Blair was arrested in McCormick and charged with public disorderly conduct.
He acted aggressively in the street and was believed to have had rifle bullets in his pocket, according to a Monday news release.
Blair was transported to the McCormick County Detention Center, where he became combative with staffers, physically assaulting multiple people by kicking and punching them.
Authorities tried to subdue him with a Taser and pepper spray, but Blair continued his attack, breaking the arm of a McCormick County deputy.
