CHP: Get out or be Tased

A man who allegedly was driving under the influence landed in jail after repeatedly refusing to exit his vehicle.

Bryce Lee Roberts, 21, of Grass Valley, was driving on Old Auburn Road north of Archery Way in Sherwood Forest early Sunday when he spun out and got stuck in the mud, said California Highway Patrol Officer Cindy Morgan.

When an officer arrived, Roberts was still in the car with the engine running and the doors locked, Morgan said.

“He wouldn’t roll the windows down, or open the door,” Morgan said.

The officer warned him repeatedly, then broke the passenger window to gain access to the vehicle, she said.

“He was still refusing to comply and get out of the vehicle,” Morgan said. “He was threatened with a Taser and he finally got out.”

Roberts was uninjured and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was booked into Nevada County jail and released on $1,316 bail.
