Officers Elam and Green see a person that they believe has a felony warrant. Upon making contact the suspect immediately gives them a name, however, officers don’t believe he’s giving them his proper identity. After pulling up his photo, they positively identify him as the person with the warrant. Officer Elam calls him by his real name “Hey Ray” in which he responds to. Officers attempt to take him into custody, however he strongly resists verbally that they have the wrong guy. After an exchange of words, and physical resistance, they wrestle to the ground, and he is placed in cuffs. Officer Elam allows the subjects girlfriend to talk to him and kiss him goodbye. The suspect is transported to jail for his felony warrant and resisting arrest.
