A 28-year-old Ceres man wanted for an assault with a deadly weapon charge decided to fight a Ceres Police officer making an arrest but was finally taken into custody on Wednesday evening, Dec. 16.

At 7:39 p.m., Officer Jon Blount spotted David Glover, 28 of Ceres, walking down the 1700 block of Mitchell Road and was aware that he had a felony warrant for his arrest related to an assault with a deadly weapon. Officer Blount approached Glover who immediately became belligerent and refusing to stop. Blount told Glover to stop, that he was not free to leave, but Glover took a fighting stance as he called the officer names. Glover advanced toward the officer and a struggle ensued.  Officer Blount was able to pin Glover against a wall of a building. Other officer arrived to assist Officer Blount in restraining Glover in handcuffs.

During a search, officers located a glass methamphetamine pipe on Glover. In addition to the warrant, Glover had a second felony warrant issued by the Stanislaus County Sheriff Department. 

Glover faces charges of resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, probation violations and the two felony warrants.
