Kyle Rodriguez wasn’t too happy when police officers approached him at the Hilton Garden Inn parking lot Dec. 19.

He claimed that he was checking on his car, but despite this excuse, Gallup Police Department Officer Angelo Cellicion said that he would be transferred to Gallup Detox Center.

“Kyle Rodriguez appeared to get angry and stood in a fighting stance,” according to Darius Johnson’s police report.

When both Johnson and Cellicion  tried to handcuff him, a scuffle ensued. Both officers were able to subdue Rodriguez, and he went to jail instead of detox. Rodriguez, 28, was booked for battery on a police officer.
