An Augusta man with four outstanding warrants, including two felonies, was arrested Wednesday on Collier Road.

Kendal Bernard Heath, 32, was stopped for a possible window-tint violation by Deputy William Mundy, and gave the deputy a false name and date of birth, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

Heath fled the car and began running, jumping several fences into private backyards with the deputy in pursuit, according to the report.
When Mundy caught up with him, Heath said, “I ain’t going to jail,” and took a stance that indicated he would resist arrest, the incident report said. Mundy struck him in the leg with his baton and placed him in custody, according to the report.

Heath was charged with misdemeanor obstruction, giving false information, driving while suspended and window-tint violation.

He also was wanted on warrants charging possession of alprazolam, possession of cocaine and possession of a firearm, plus bench warrants from Superior and State courts.

Kendal doesn't learn, he got

Kendal doesn't learn, he got arrested in Sardis for cocaine possession from a traffic stop.

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

FIRST OFFENDER
Unpublished

With the past record of prosecutors and judges this guy looks like a prime candidate for first time offender status. Four or five crimes really isn't all that much!

Finally makes an Arrest and writes a report

Glad Officer Mundy found a new patrol area, where he is doing some good until he retires.

Because he wasn't much help to Goshen Community Watch members 2+ years ago.

It's funny to read this

It's funny to read this article cause Richmond County Sheriff's deputies will lied to cover their actions. For example traffic stop: I was driving while black and marked patrol followed me an pulled me over on a sunny day. So I asked the Richmond County Sheriff's deputy why he stop me and he replied " my car windows are too tinted" and I told him that's not true. I got out of my car and walked to the rear of my car and told the white deputy " you can see vivid through my rear window" So he put his device on my windows to check my tint ness and all windows were legal. After all that the white Sheriff's deputy asked me to search my car for drugs. I gave him the consent and another white deputy pulled up and help search and found no drugs or guns or whatever this deputy was looking for. But this deputy want harass me no more after I filed a complaint against that Richmond Co. Sheriff's deputy with the Federal Bureau of Investgation the Civil Rights Divison,for racial profiling and using false allegation for reason stopping me for a traffic stop.

While I support my Local LEO's

Sure there are some situations where it is quickly understood the issue is not the reason being given.

Right or Wrong many LEO's will play hunches based on what they have experienced in given areas.

The DWB comment, if true, is likely the <1% and not the norm.

But like I have said repeatedly over the years
99% of the RCSO LEO's are good professionals.

Besides Sheriff Roundtree has shown me to be professional ,despite my early misgivings. I feel certain he would investigate any such reports with a fine tooth comb.

Actually, Federal statistics

Actually, Federal statistics provide that 98% of law enforcement officer's in the Country are honorable!! Corruption or civil rights violations have commonly occured with around 2% or less of total law enforcement throughout the Country!!

The "driving while black"

The "driving while black" comment may be valid. His lawyer can argue that point in court. But the fact remains that those kind of stops result in a high percentage of arrests for other crimes such as drug possession, possession with intent to distribute, illegal weapons or possession of weapons by convicted felons, possession of stolen property, and stolen vehicles. As long as those types of stops result in such a high percentage of arrests for other crimes it is hard to garner much public outrage against them. It's no different that the "rolling thunder" traffic checkpoints. I think those are unconstitutional too but the public is not interested in getting up in arms about them because they do catch a lot of drunks, unregistered and uninsured vehicles, and people with outstanding warrants. The best way to reduce or prevent DWB stops is for them to become unproductive....and I bet that ain't going to happen anytime soon. Cops looking for criminals is like bank robbers looking for money.....they go where it is. Do innocent people get inconvenienced and harassed sometimes.....yes. Is it right.....probably not. Is it illegal.....the courts have not stopped it. Is it successful.....yes. I expect that if it was not so successful, they would not do it so much.

Yea, Blacks only get pulled over because they're black and never because they're doing a criminal act. Stop playing the race card. I got pulled over by a black Aiken County Sheriff deputy was I a victim of driving while white? No it was because I was speeding!

"So I asked the Richmond

"So I asked the Richmond County Sheriff's deputy why he stop me and he replied " my car windows are too tinted" and I told him that's not true. I got out of my car and walked to the rear of my car and told the white deputy " you can see vivid through my rear window""

I have a good deal of trouble with this statement... typically if you get out your car without being instructed to, you will most likely experience a reminder (baton strike, tazer introduction, etc.) I believe I will dismiss this post as further evidence of slander.

You wouldn't know the truth if it hit you in the face. That entire diatribe is ridiculous and no deputy of any race would let you walk around at will nor do they care about your back window. There may be a few that care about race but most simply want to do a good job and remove the criminal element from our streets.

All complaints against LEO's are taken seriously and most turn out not to be true and accurate. As MyFather15 points out, less than 2% of law enforcement officers are found to violate laws and oaths of office, far less than most other professionals.

This Deputy Sheriff did a great job and another wanted criminal is off of our streets, keep up the great job RCSO.

I seen middle aged white people pulled over for the same thing at the Target shopping center on Robert Daniels Parkway. Also seen a young white girl pulled over for the same thing at Best Buy. Stop using the race card gezz.
