Police: Man charged with DUI, resisting after refusing to leave vehicle

DeKALB – Police said a 32-year-old Batavia man was arrested for driving under the influence just after sunrise Sunday – but not without a struggle to get him out of the car.

Jonathan M. Anderson, of 1300 Brandywine Circle, has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and resisting arrest, and also has been cited for improper parking on the road.

According to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded about 6:20 a.m. to John Huber Parkway and Twombly Road, where a caller said Anderson was passed out in his running vehicle, with the vehicle in drive and his foot on the brake.

Deputies did, in fact, find Anderson in his running vehicle, stopped in the southbound lane on John Huber Parkway, where there was no stop sign. According to the release, Anderson spent 12 minutes refusing to obey orders to get out of the car or unlock its doors, so deputies entered through the rear passenger door, restrained the driver and unlocked the doors.

The release said Anderson resisted deputies as he was arrested at the scene, and continued to resist when he was booked into DeKalb County Jail. He’ll have a bond hearing at 1 p.m. Monday.
