Both a Canyon Country man and woman were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of fighting deputies who were conducting a follow-up visit in regards to another investigation.
The incident that led to the arrests stemmed from deputies stopping by the 21200 block of Willow Weed Way, in the Greenbrier Mobile Estates, at approximately 2:30 p.m. to check on a man wanted on a number of warrants, according to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The deputies made contact with the wanted 18-year-old man, who “became uncooperative,” Arriaga said. “A brief struggle ensued, in which a female adult also became uncooperative.”
Deputies were able to detain both the man and the 19-year-old Newhall woman without further incident.
Both were transported and booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on suspicion of obstructing a police officer.
The man also had warrants out for suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting an officer, possession of a check with intent to commit forgery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon/addict, possession of a controlled substance and felony evading.
