A Georgia man has been charged with having a vehicle in his possession stolen out of Michigan. And two citizens had to help a deputy arrest the man when a Tazer had no effect on him.
Assistant chief deputy Steve Guthrie gave this account:
"On April 20, Marshall County Lt. Willie Orr responded to a suspicious vehicle parked on the edge of Bonds Road in Guntersville," Guthrie said. "When Lt. Orr arrived on scene, he observed a Hispanic male standing inside the driver's door. Lt. Orr attempted to identify the subject but this soon led to a scuffle. Lt. Orr was forced to Taze the subject only to find it had no effect.
"Fortunately two good Samaritans witnessed the struggle between our deputy and the subject and decided to assist," Guthrie said. "Thanks to their help, Lt. Orr was able to cuff the subject who was later identified as Salomon Andres Ramirez of Blue Ridge, Georgia. It was also determined the vehicle Ramirez was in was stolen from the state of Michigan. Ramirez was charged with receiving stolen property, using false identity to avoid or hinder arrest, attempting to elude and resisting arrest and is currently being held in the Marshall County Jail on a $30,000 bond."
