Man on Drugs Violently Resists Officers & Isn’t Fazed by Taser

Napier_picOfficers with the Brooksville Police Department responded to a residence on Daffodil Drive just before 9:00 p.m. on September 13, 2014 after the property owner reported that Phillip Napier was under the influence of narcotics and refused to leave. Napier locked himself in a shed and refused to open the door. According to Officers, he was acting paranoid, delusional, and aggressive toward them. He became increasingly violent and kicked one of the officers in the chest and groin and armed himself with a knife but was eventually disarmed. He reportedly resisted Officers’ attempts to place him in handcuffs by kicking, screaming, and squirming. While wrestling on the ground one Officer utilized his Taser but it had no visible affect on Napier and he attempted to take the Taser from the Officer. Additional officers had to be called to assist and he appeared to lose consciousness after being cuffed. CPR was initiated and Officers were able to revive Napier before he was transported to Bayfront Health where he remains under care. A warrant has been issued and will be served upon Napier’s release from the hospital for Battery on Law Enforcement Officer, two counts of Resisting with Violence, and Depriving Officer of Means of Protection. Bond is $17,000.

Suspicious Vehicle Investigation Lands 3 in Jail on Drug Charges

ArrestHernando County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to investigate a suspicious vehicle at the Hess Gas Station on Deltona Boulevard just before midnight on September 13, 2014. The complainant advised that the occupants of a blue Honda Civic in the
parking lot were doing drugs and possibly prostituting. The driver, Richard Reiter, told deputies they were just filling up a tire but two syringes were in plain view inside the car. The three occupants were asked to step out of the vehicle so it could be searched. In addition to the syringes they located a spoon and 1 1/2 Lorazepam pills in the console of the car. Reiter was placed under arrest for possession of paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance, and driving on a suspended license. A purse belonging to the passenger in the backseat, Felicia Cabrera, contained two more syringes and a spoon that tested positive for methamphetamine residue. She was charged with possession of paraphernalia. The third occupant, James Grady Jr., was initially only placed under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia as well. However while en route to the jail, the deputy saw Grady take something out of his pants and put it in his mouth so he pulled over and conducted another search. Grady was concealing a small bag of methamphetamine in his anal crevices and a prescription bottle containing Citalopram, Lexapro, Hydromorphone, and Vyvanse was found in the backseat of the patrol car where he was sitting. Grady admitted that the methamphetamine and pills were his post miranda. He was charged with possession of methamphetamine, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of new drug without a prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was already out on bond for falsification of ownership to pawn broker so he is being held without bond.

Man Berates Deputies After Placing Five 911 Calls

youngAmos Young shared a few drinks with his brothers and some choice words with Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies who were dispatched to his house on Oneal Road after he called 911 several times on September 12, 2014. When deputies arrived they found Young stumbling around in the middle of the road near his two heavily intoxicated brothers, with an open can of beer in hand and a nearly empty bottle of vodka in his pocket screaming that “everyone was acting up.” His brothers advised that nothing was wrong and the call was cleared. A second 911 call was received a few minutes later and deputies went back to the house. When Young was asked why he’d called he responded “F— y’all. Y’all never do s—.” His brothers again said nothing was wrong and that they did not know why Young kept calling so the call was cleared. Minutes later a third call was received so deputies went back to the home where Young was standing near the end of his driveway screaming vulgarities at them. According to dispatch’s records Young called 911 five times in just over an hour. He was placed under arrest for misuse of 911. While in route to the jail Young repeatedly banged his head against the window of the patrol car and screamed “F— 911! F— the law!” He was given a $1,000 bond.
