Two people were arrested after a protracted battle with Moraga police officers attempting to serve an arrest warrant at a residence in the 300 block of Rheem Boulevard July 14.
Officers went to an apartment in the area at 11:52 p.m. that evening to serve the warrant, police say, but encountered two subjects (41-year-old Angela Morris and 47-year-old Roy Morris) in the parking lot of the complex upon arrival.
The suspects, who police said were determined to be associated with the given location, immediately accosted the officers verbally and attempted to prevent them from serving the warrant.
Police said the the pair “continued to delay and obstruct the officers and ultimately became physically resistive and assaultive, engaging in an extended physical fight with the officers.”
Pepper spray and a Taser were eventually deployed by officers, police said. No major injuries were sustained by either the suspects or the officers and the suspects were booked for felony 69 PC (resisting arrest) with additional charges of probation violation on Roy and possession of methamphetamine on Angela. The case will be reviewed by the DA for charging, according to police.
