Ms. Baker became more belligerent as the witness was talking to Dfc. Stone. Dfc. Stone asked Ms. Baker several times to stop cursing and yelling which Ms. Baker refused.

HINDERING. RESISTING ARREST: On Sept. 20 at approximately 1:30 a.m., deputies responded to Shamrock Lane in Mechanicsville for a noise complaint. Investigation revealed several individuals at the residence were under 21 years of age and under the influence of alcoholic beverages. To determine if the underage individuals were under the influence of alcoholic beverages, deputies began to offer and administer preliminary breath tests (PBTs). Patrick Joseph Darbie, Jr., 19, of Mechanicsville, was offered a PBT which he refused. Mr. Darbie became argumentative and began to curse and attempted to incite approximately 30 other individuals. Mr. Darbie was instructed by deputies to stop cursing and remain quiet as he was hindering a police investigation. Mr. Darbie refused. Mr. Darbie was told he was under arrest and instructed to place his hands behind his back. Mr. Darbie refused to follow the deputies' instructions. As deputies attempted to handcuff Mr. Darbie, he pulled away and attempted to run away from the deputies. Deputies caught Mr. Darbie and were again attempting to handcuff him, but Mr. Darbie refused to obey several commands to comply and actively struggled to prevent the deputies from affecting the arrest. Mr. Darbie was eventually subdued and handcuffed.
