ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - A Rock Hill man is being sought after police say a group screamed about Baton Rouge during a confrontation with local officers and a suspect allegedly punched an officer in the head.
According to a Rock Hill Police report, officers were called to Bob's Food Mart on East Main Street Wednesday night around 11:40 p.m. for disorderly people.
Police say they questioned three men outside the store before asking them to leave. According to the police report, one of the men refused to go, saying he was a taxpaying citizen. He then reportedly became "loud and verbally disorderly, refusing to listen" to the officers.
A fourth officer, shift supervisor Sergeant Stokes, came out to the store and attempted to talk to the men.
According to the report, one of the men said he didn't care who Sgt. Stokes was, saying he didn't "give a [expletive] about a badge" and that he was a taxpayer and "this ain't Baton Rouge."
When Stokes again asked the group to leave, another man took off his shirt and said "[Expletive] that, I ain't going nowhere," according to the report.
That man, identified as 20-year-old D'Aaron Boyd Colston, reportedly said he had already knocked another police officer out and would do the same to Stokes.
When Stokes attempted to arrest Colston, the two other men - identified as 25-year-old Andrew Oscar Drakeford and 20-year-old Devario Tyrece King - began pushing officers saying "Stokes wasn't going to put his hands on their brother," according to the report.
That's when police say Colston punched Stokes on the left side of his head. When Stokes attempted to grab Colston, he "slid away and took a fighting stance." Stokes attempted to use his Taser on Colston, but missed and Colston ran away.
Drakeford and King were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. A warrant was issued for Colston on charges of resisting arrest.
