Quigley intentionally grabbed the buttocks of a 22-year-old woman on Saturday night without her permission and tried to follow her up the stairs, but was too drunk. She was walking up the stairs into an apartment building, according to reports.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they found Quigley lying on the ground, as he was too intoxicated to get up. Deputies say that he was acting in a hostile fashion when they were trying to speak to him. Quigley attempted to resist the officers as they reached for him and tried to detain him.
Deputies were able to arrest Quigley for battery and resisting an officer without violence. He kicked and spat inside the patrol car as he was being taken from the scene.
