On June 1, 2018, at approximately 2:30 a.m., a deputy with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a disturbance. When the deputy arrived he attempted to arrest Jessica Elaine Ryan, 29, for an outstanding warrant. Ryan reportedly resisted arrest and attempted to get away from the deputy. After a short struggle the deputy was able to place the handcuffs on her wrists. When the deputy and his partner attempted to place Ryan in the patrol unit, she continued resisting, authorities say.
“Due to her continuous resistance, it was decided that she would be placed in a unit with a camera for the safety of both her and the deputies. When the deputies began to move her to the other unit she refused and wedged herself between the seat and the protective plate. After another short altercation she was moved to the other unit and transported to the Liberty County Jail,” according to Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader.
Jessica Elaine Ryan was arrested on the outstanding warrant for a parole violation and charged with Resist Arrest/Search or Transportation – Class A Misdemeanor.
