After watching him nearly cause a crasj and running red signal lights, a 26-year-old Waterford man was arrested Friday morning in a high-risk stop in which he fought Ceres officers trying to arrest him.

Keynin Isaiah Scott, 26, of Waterford, was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of obstructing/resisting a peace officer, flight from officer, and violation of the terms of his probation.

The incident began at 10:55 a.m. when Officer Mike Vierra witnessed a near traffic collision in the area of Hatch and Morgan roads. Scott ran a red light in his Acura as he continued eastbound on Hatch. Vierra pulled in behind Scott’s vehicle with emergency lights and siren but the driver failed to stop. He continued to drive at slow speeds down Hatch Road and then ran another red light at Hatch and Crows Landing roads. Scott finally pulled over in the area of Crows Landing Road and Crater Avenue in south Modesto. 

Scott was ordered out of the car and while initially compliant, he quickly became uncooperative and had to be forced to the ground after a brief struggle during handcuffing.
