A man matching his description was found in the store, and arrest documents state he became extremely hostile when contacted by police. He refused to stop walking and told police to leave him alone.

Authorities could smell alcohol on Figueroa’s breath, and he tried to walk out of the store and began cursing and yelling.

Police patted him down while doing a warrant check, and he pulled away from officers, continuing to pull and struggle. He was eventually taken to the ground and placed in handcuffs.

Figueroa was placed under arrest for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
