Man, 19, arrested after confronting deputy at Grovetown party

An Appling teen was arrested late Sunday after fighting deputies outside a Grovetown party.

Bryan Lee Rogers, 19, of Adelia Drive, was charged with disorderly conduct.

Deputies responded to a suspicious situation on Glenn Falls about 11:30 p.m. and found a party that included underage drinking, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report. Most people at the party left before authorities arrived. A deputy tested the remaining partygoers, who admitted drinking, but all tested negative.

As deputies cleared the party out, Rogers came to the door asking to get his jacket from inside. When the homeowner asked him to wait outside for a moment, Rogers became belligerent and started cursing, according to the report.

A deputy asked his name and Rogers walked off saying he didn’t have to talk to the deputy. As the deputy stopped him, Rogers turned and took an aggressive stance, the report stated. The deputy handcuffed Rogers, who continued cursing at deputies and witnesses.

Rogers refused to get into the patrol car, braced against the door jamb and continued yelling and cursing. A deputy grabbed Rogers’ hands while two others lifted his feet and put him into the patrol car, according to the report.

The deputy believed Rogers, who refused to take a field alcohol test, was intoxicated because he smelled like alcohol, his eyes were glazed and his speech was slurred, according to the report. Rogers admitted drinking five or six beers.

Rogers was taken to the Columbia County Detention Center, where he was being held Monday on a $500 bond, according to jailers.
