Man arrested Halloween night after threatening Burney victims, resisting deputies

BURNEY — A man was arrested after allegedly threatening several people at a Burney apartment complex and then fleeing from deputies and resisting arrest earlier this evening, Wednesday, Oct. 31.

The incident began at Burney Villa Apartments, at 20181 Hudson St., between Cypress Ave. and Timber Hill Dr., and ended about a quarter-mile away on Park Ave.

Burney Station deputies were dispatched to the apartment complex shortly before 9:20 p.m., after receiving reports of a man threatening people at the complex. Radio traffic at the time indicated 911 callers said the man was wearing a jacket and tan pants and was riding a bicycle.

Deputies began arriving just one minute after the call was dispatched and soon updated that they had located and detained the alleged suspect.

At some point during the contact the man resisted deputies, who updated SHASCOM dispatchers several minutes later that they had re-apprehended the man at Park Ave. and “Maury” – possibly Missouri Way.

Deputies arrested the man and transported him to Burney sub-station where they later requested paramedics respond to evaluate the man. Radio traffic indicated fire and rescue personnel released the man back to deputies about twenty minutes later after evaluating and medically clearing him.

It was not immediately known what the man was arrested for and other than resisting arrest, what other charges he could be facing.

As of this report, the man had not been booked into jail and sheriff’s officials had not yet released any information or details about the incident and arrest.

This is a developing story that will be updated as new information is available.
