Editor's Note: A previous version of this story misidentified the suspect.


A 25-year-old Augusta man had to be subdued with a pepper spray after resisting arrest for suspected driving under the influence Tuesday.

According to an incident report, deputies were attempting to arrest Christian Dion Brown on the 2900 block of Washington Road around 2:30 a.m. New Year’s Day when he began to jerk his hands away and push the officer.

After being sprayed, Brown continued to resist and had to be taken to the ground where he attempted to hide his hands. After being handcuffed, deputies washed Brown’s face and transported him to Richmond County Jail.

He faces charges of driving under the influence, expired tag and misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

How many drunk drivers did the checkpoints net?
Unpublished

Drunk drunks? Drunk public servants? The TV said there would be a lot of these checkpoints. Drunk special people and their teenagers? How many calls for a ride home by drunks or bar tenders?

Last name is Brown

Christian Dion BROWN is the correct name. Seems like a perfect time to have used a taser. I hope Richmond County gets them soon.
