“This individual is a habitual criminal. He preys on society and is definitely a danger to the community. He is repeatedly arrested and released from jail. This needs to stop before the ultimate price is paid. The Deputies on scene handled the situation well and I am proud of their efforts in putting him behind bars once again.”
